Cask pint at Beau's Oktoberfest. From notes.

A - Poured amber with a white soapy head. Bright.

S - Bready with resinous hops and earth.

T - Some wood, hops, earth, dark smelling rich resinous hops, earth and wood with dark bread. No citrus.

M - Light carbonation, medium to full body and bitter.

O/D - Rich and interesting. The oak definately had an affect on the hops, perhaps changing their complexion. Tasty.

On cask at C'est What.
Oak Aged version of Headstock IPA.

A - Medium amber colour, slightly murky. Small amount of white head that quickly disappeared.

S -Some floral and citrus notes with some sweetness. Light nose for the abv. Didn't get the oak.

T - Good bitterness with floral and light citrus flavours. A noticeable caramel malt backbone is present as well. Again, the wood/oak flavours were not very detectable.

M - Light to medium body. Light carbonation.
