Cask drawn ale served at the perfect temperature.
Drawn into an imperial pint, deep orange body with a grainy, hazy look. Patches of red in the body under changing light. Full, thick head, but no lacing on the glass. Aroma isn't hindered by the thick foam cap though, as a mild orange and warm aroma hits the nose. Slight spice from hops brightens the smell, and dry malt smell balance both the alcohol and hop.
Taste is warm and inviting as the spicey hops meet with the full malts. Orange peel and bisquit crunch. Wild hop combination creates a dry finish. Quite a stellar pint.
This was served at the perfect temperature, warm enough for the flavors to sing, yet just enough coolness to keep it refreshing.

Nosferatu was apparently a vampire whose 1922 epic debut A Symphony of Horrors was shut down by the estate of Bram Stoker who successfully sued for copyright infringement. Who would imagine you could sue a vampire for copyright infringement? Only in Hollywood.
Fittingly, Nosferatu is a red ale, at least in name. In actuality it is more auburn than bloody, perhaps the color of fallen leaves. It is densely clouded, almost creamy in its complexion and features a scant head, draping lace, and a malty nose.
Nosferatu originates on the Leavenworth end of the Fish Tale / Leavenworth partnership and tastes sharply bitter with a bite of pepper and a complimentary nutty sweetness. Its a fine standalone beer or an even finer food compliment with some of the Fishbowls grilled panini.

Had this on cask @ The Horse Brass
The appearance was a brown/red color with a thin head that diminished quickly and left minimal through the pint. Smelled strong of malts, some fruity smells coming through but not much. Taste very malty as well but with the hops peeking out right at the end. This was a decent beer, I'm glad I got to drink it from cask.
