My wife and I both had a pint of this beer on a lazy summer afternoon at The Taphouse Grill in Norfolk (Ghent). Originally we were going to have Racer5, but they were all out. On a whim I asked the bartender if they had anything on cask, and whenI found out they had Dogfish 60, I couldn't resist! By the way, this is my first experience with cask conditioned beers.
Poured a hazy (very hazy) orange/yellow color with a frothy white head. Nice lacing the whole way down.
This beer gave off a grassy, faint aroma. Nothing overwhelming here. (this is a good thing, to me). I think I spent a few minutes actually just looking at this beer. It looked extremely beautiful.
First sip: WOW. This beer was served somewhat warm (Im guessing this is how cask beer is served), and this only intensified what I was tasting out of this beer. I was initially expecting a huge hop presence, as I have been drinking fairly hoppy IPA's as of late. Not the case here. Everything was balanced exceptionally. Nice creamy malts, and sweet hops came through...lemon, but not overbearing, some faint grapefruit flavors, a little bit of grass, tapering off with a very, very buttery finish. Lasting flavors are sustained in the back of the tongue and throat. This beer just stays on the palate, long after each sip. The mouthfeel of this beer was incredible!
This beer was a masterpiece. It seems like this beer has benifited a lot from the cask conditioning. It just seemed so very round and mellow. I've enjoyed 60 minute from the bottle before, and I think it is a stellar brew anyways, but the cask version is simply amazing.
I will definately be seeking this beer out again. Oh yeah...the price for each pint of this glorious nectar? $3.50. Can't beat that!
