On cask at Volo's Cask Days 2011, listed at 50 IBUs.

Poured a reddish orange, with some offwhite bubbles; moderate retention. Nose has some grapefruit and other resinous hop notes. Some pine and a intensely bready malt character. Taste is bready and lightly buttery, orange, grapefruits and pine in terms of hop flavours but something isn't quite to my liking here and I can't quite identify it. Long bitter finish, with a thinner than medium mouthfeel. Modest drinkability. I'm not a huge fan of the hop profile here and it's presentation alongside these malts; nonetheless I'm not entirely surprised given my unfavorable opinion on their base ESB.
