On cask for the 2012 Peter Reeves Memorial Sourfest at Churchill’s Pub & Grille in San Marcos, CA.

Pours a slightly murky red with a foamy reddish-white head that fades to nothing. No lacing on the drink down. Lots of flaky sediment settles to the bottom of the glass after the pour. Smell is sour and tart with berry, lime, and herbal aromas. Taste is much the same with a fruity jam or jelly kind of flavor. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with some solid aromas and flavors but the cask presentation makes the appearance and mouthfeel suffer.
