Went up to the Meretrix release Saturday afternoon and saw this one offered on cask. I'd never had a cask lager before so I gave it a shot. Poured a nice light golden color with a big fluffy white head. Good hoppy aromas, lead to a light bodied and somewhat hollow palate, with light biscuit and hop flavors.

Looks of frosted honey and gold with a

Smell light acridity, and phosphorus and citrus

Tastes lightly of wheat and malts and not really much else. Surprised at the lack of flavor.

Smooth and creamy, with a light medium body and super low carbonation you'd expect from a firkin.

Wouldn't really be a beer I would recommend, but I would recommend the regular joes pils
