This beer pours as a light caramel color with a white foamy head on it. The aroma is a bit earthy and doesn't have a whole lot more coming off of it in my opinion. The taste is very lightly flavored with grains and some hops. The mouthfeel is very watery and kind of on the flat side. This beer along with a bunch of Sly Fox's releases just are not impressive to me. I feel bad saying that but I've not had a single one that really sticks out to me and makes me say "Wow".

Cask at Cole's cask festival. A fine bitter although a sour finish. Pros were the understated bitterness, and full mouthfeel. A faint Caesar crown an apple juice colour. Is it infection? Sourness does spoil getting it spot in, still a drinkable one.
