I've had a fairly limited experience with cask ales (prob. under ten before this), but I always looked at BA articles and reviews and wondered what the big deal was because I never thought it was all that special.

This beer (and their Horseridge IPA on cask) gives me cause for pause and a chance to think, "perhaps I've been missing something".

A fantastic medium amber/red color and wonderfully cloudy head caught my eye immediately.

Slightly floral and only minor citrus hop aroma blended with a robust, rather than sweet, malt nose.

This was perhaps the best beer I've ever had on tap. I wouldn't bother to describe it in terms of character, but rather in terms of experience. You won't get this unless you're in the pub. Get there. Get it.

I could drink it all day, all night... if I lived in Bend... but I'll be back....
