Cask at some working mens club in Stockport watching my Dad do a gig. Clear golden brown with thick creamy off white head. Malty caramel aroma, some floral hops. Flavour is similar. Not bad actually but not very me.

Oakes (13132) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 24, 2014
Light hazy tan, bubbly head. Light body, generally refreshing but perhaps too much caramel and not enough hop. Disappointing, from a brewery whose products I normally enjoy.
