Poured from a cask and was a hazy orange in colour.

Smelled of sweet cereal malts with a hint of spicy hops.

Very mild in flavour with little to no carbonation. Faint bread-malts and not much else to it. Very timid for a beer.

Would I buy it again? Meh.

Hazy Amber color with modest head. Nice malts smell to nose with hint of spice. Modest hops are balanced with the malts for a nice feel; does not linger on the palate.
