The overall character of the cask version is very similar to on-tap. Quite clear with a nice chestnut brown colour. Good head retention. Malt is much more prominent with even less contribution from the hops. Toffee and caramel with a bit of chocolate. The low carbonation seemed to emphasize lightness in the body. Quite drinkable and good for a session brew.

I could drink this and look at its dark colour, and it is somewhat rich in chocolate malts and caramel. Bit of roast.. But sourdough mid sip?Medium mouthfeel. On tap at Bow and Arrow BarTowel night, suitable understated carbonation. Unique and worth points.
