Cask from the LC Dining Hall in Fitzroy as one of their "one-off" beers during Good Beer Week.

Bright, very hazy golden orange hue. Solid fine, egg white head that foams from excited turbidity, but settles down as the almost nonexistent carbonation fails to feed it. Lace is great, thick and rich just like cask should be.

Nose is bright clear and pleasantly floaral, with nice sweet hoppy characters giving characters of strong rose perfume and apricot stone fruit. Sharper green notes give a hint of herbs—perhaps rosemary—but they're trapped in the pleasantly deep sweetness. It's like an apricot danish with rosemary tinted pastry. Very nice.

Taste is lighter, with a clean fruity hop character through the front, with a touch of earthy bite, and a soft vegetative sweetness. Finish gets a bit of grain husk and some gritty yeast flowing through, along with a phantom bitterness that doesn't seem to hit the tongue as the beer goes down, but which builds up on the back palate after a while.

Feel is smooth and flat—classic cask character.

Very drinkable, and really quite pleasant indeed. I love how smooth it comes across, and the clean roundness of stone fruit the Stella gives it. Very tasty brew overall, and a great tweak on the beer.
