Had another nugget nectar. This time from poured from a cask into a faceted beer mug.

My last review of this beer was from the same bar (Fat Heads, Pittsburgh). I didn't have a very good experience from the tap. This time, from the cask, was much better. Actually very good.

The beer was served at the correct temperature for a cask pour. Not cold nor warm, somewhere in between. The head was already settled when the beer arrived, but not quite gone. Perhaps about 100 mils. Laces starting to cling.

The nose to this was stunning. At first I got a large woft of hops. This migrated to mellow orange peel and then ruby red grapefruit.

The feel was very soft and medium to meduim light. I was trying to rethink the feel from the tap but I don't remember the tap as good as this cask beer was. Tasted like nice clean hops and citrus fruits. The cask temperature really tamed the bitterness away. Not quite a sweet one but better balanced for my taste.

While I really enjoyed this beer, I stopped at one.
