Served from the firkin at Fringe Fest, Belmont Station PDX, 7.30.11.

One finger off white head, billowing due to nice hand pump job, clear copper amber body no visible carbonation re cask conditioning, pretty fast dissipation with nice lacing. Caramel malts dominate the nose, balanced by a bit of toasted bread and grassy hops. Taste mirrors nose, pretty caramelly but not overly sweet, almost a brown bread flavor (which I enjoy). Mouthfeel a bit on the full side of medium, fairly dry with a slight bit of stickiness. Real drinkable, I forgot to write down ABV expect it was right around 5 percent. Ted keeps knocking it out of the park with his authentic cask ales, I wish he'd make it out of Oakridge a little more often. CAMRA should be proud, this is a very, very good cask conditioned ale.
