On cask at the brewery. Poured less than two minutes after the cask was tapped. Cask was truly a cask (not a firkin).

Has a thin weak head that fades fast like so many cask ales. Body is a hazy yet vibrant orange.

Aroma evokes more genuine blood orange than probably any beer I've ever encountered... it's a difficult note to make seem authentic, but damnit if they didn't nail it. Pungent and inviting. One of the freshest aromas in a beer I've ever experienced. Suggests a bitter yet fresh as fuck beer with a floral hop profile mingling with rich blood orange to good effect.

Taste doesn't quite hold up to the aroma, offering simplistic blood orange fruit and fruity hop flavours atop a pale malt foundation.

Undercarbonated like most cask ales. Smooth, wet, unrefreshing. Thin. Weak. It's a shame this was cask instead of CO2.

The potential is huge here if they put this in kegs. The blood orange added in secondary makes the aroma terrific, but the taste doesn't deliver on the fantastic aroma's promises, leaving this competent but disappointing. Add blood orange in primary too! More pulpy fruity flavours could only help, and I'd love this if the hop flavours rose to the level of pungency that it needs.

High C+ (3.25) / ABOVE AVERAGE
