Foamy head still settling when brought out to me. Pumpkin color with bright highlights around the edges of the glass.

S: Spices, apple, and orange

T: Smooth and fruity start with a tart finish. Nice bittery after taste.

M: Smooth but very thick and bready.

D: Very drinkable with a well hidden alcohol level.

This came with an off-white head, still foamy from the pump, which had good retention. The nose was an interesting mix of malt and hops. There was great clarity in this amber colored beer. The mouthfeel was medium with a good hoppy bite on the tongue and the finish remained hoppy with a light malty sweetness appearing at the end. This was an eminently drinkable beer and the fact that it was cask-conditioned made it even more so.

From a growler. Brownish white head that was rather small. Hazy orange tan color. Some lace, medium low carbonation. Aromas of hops and grass dominate, with strong malty notes. Taste was good; strong yet enjoyable hoppiness with a hint of spices and malt. Mouthfeel was slightly oily. Drinkability is pretty good. A growler was good enough for me and my buddy to split, but anymore than that and i'd be sick of it quickly.
