Pours a translucent copper-brown with a finger of dense, off-white foam. Head retention is great. Aroma is bread, biscuits and raw grain. It smells very light, with a bitter presence. Flavor profile brings forward the bitterness just a touch more, along with notes of bread, biscuits and wafers. Mouth feel has a light particulate to it, with a fizzy, but not quite crisp texture. It has a medium thickness. Overall, malt forward and concluded well for a standard, session-able bitter ale.

Cask. Draft. Reviewed from notes.

AK w/EKG hops on cask for the Beer from the Wood series (#5). Beautiful orange hue, creamy and full mouthfeel. Strong taste of dried apricots, slightly metallic. Didn't get a lot of aroma, but that's more my nose than the beer I feel. Decent beer, but not a keeper for me.

On cask at Hogshead, listed as an ordinary bitter and has Pilgrim hops. Tawny color, decent head. Aroma is slight hops. Flavor is pretty ordinary actually with the slightest hint of plastic. Overall another let down, not sure why I didn't just get the Gilpin or Chin Wag.
