Cask - Lots of grains and a bit of caramel on the nose. Cloudy copper with a thin head. Grains come through again with a mild hopped bitterness. Maybe a touch to bitter, but a very sessionable if average ESB.

Hand pump at Nakameguro. Dark brown with a low head. Big malt nose, chocolate, caramel, grassy Goldings hops. Peppery finish. Very drinkable and super rich and full body. A bit too sweet possibly.
