On Cask at Market Porter

A_Pours a straw yellow with a nice off white head.

S_The aroma is strong with grapefruit, elderflower and a nice bit of wheat.

T_Floral taste comes through at first followed by a bit of lemon. The aftertaste is a bit of that elderflower. This opens up and combines with the wheat as you drink it.

M_On the lighter wide of medium with a low carbonation.

O_The elderflower is not overpowering here but provides a bit more interest than a typical blonde. Not my favorite style but its quaffable.

Served from the cask into a true pint glass in a pub in London, England. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a one finger head, devoid of cream, rather thin, and of decent retention. Clear yellow colour.

Sm: Cream, light lemon peel, and full grain. Mild.

T: Cream open is light in tone, followed by an estery tinged barley foundation with badly considered crystal hops and even bittering hops present. Simple, badly built, and poorly balanced.

Mf: Smooth, wet, and thin. Casking was a bad choice for this beer. Not really complementary of the flavours of the body.

Dr: Low ABV, hard to drink due to the bad flavours, and expensive. Not a good beer, especially on cask. Would be better on draught methinks. Consult me profile for me opinion on CAMRA.
