From a 500ml bottle.
L: Dark amber colour. Clear. No carbonation at all. One finger of cream head drops away quickly leaving rings of lacing. Fantastic lustre. Looks great.
S: Malty & light. Not much there.
T: Caramel plus stewed tea. Gentle bitterness. Semi-sweet.
F: Light body, almost watery. Dry finish and a hint of chew saves it.
O: Traditional, southern counties, English bitter. Malt-forward with hops in the background. Balanced but a bit boring.

Cask pour at the Madison Pourhouse in Albany, NY.

This one pours a cloudy-ish amber color, with no head, or lacing.

Smells like not much at all- I'm not sure of the age of this cask, unfortunately. I pull a little bit of floral hops but not much else.

I think this cask may have beyond it's lifetime, unfortunately. This is super watery and incredibly bland. There's just a little bit floral hops, and *maybe* just a smidge of biscuity malt, but there's just basically nothing here. Completely forgettable. I really enjoy a good bitter but I couldn't recommend this one, at least at Madison Pourhouse.

This has a very light and thin body, with a very low level of carbonation, even for a cask pour.

Not good at all.

At it's best a fabulous easy drinking session beer. Head sometimes thin, but usually leaves good lacing on the glass. The aroma is complex, nutty and floral and the taste well balanced with a decent finish.
