Cask @ Churchkey. Copper pour with hardly any head. The nose is pear, apple, slightly acetic. Some caramel. The taste is lightly tart, apple fruit leather. Acidic red apple skin. Dull carbonation, sort of lifeless. Overall, not good.

On draft at George Keeley’s. A good English style mild bitter. It tastes very much like something you might have in a pub in the U.K.

ReggieDunlap (2927) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2012
Cask...pours hazy gold with a medium creamy white head. Aroma is earthy and grassy with mild hoppy spice. Flavor has some pale malt backing and earthy/grassy hops. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is earthy/bitter and dry.

CanIHave4Beers (2908) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - APR 30, 2012
On Cask at the brewery.

Pours an orange color with a small head and some lace.

The aroma is of wet malt and some nondescript fruit. A little butter is slightly off-putting but I kind of like the almost briny character that’s going on.

The flavor is mildly bitter and hoppy with some light marmalade and toasty malt. Some fruit character, specifically red apple is bright and pleasant.

As expected the beer has a very low carbonation, which isn’t bad but this does carry the beer as a little watery on the palate.

ben4321 (3563) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 22, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2011 Location: Cask at the Brewery, 10/22/11

Aroma: It has a faint nose of caramel sweetness and some light pine
Appearance: It pours a clear caramel color, small ring of cask style head
Flavor: Taste is balanced, lots of caramel sweetness, some earth/pine, light bitter
Palate: This one has a fairly smooth cask feel, a touch watery and light of body
Overall Impression: Decent bitter, solid on cask, but nothing super special. I wanted it to be a little bit better then it actually was.

Cask at Get Real NY - Your basic bitter. Light sweet caramels, dry piny hops with a bitter finish. Quaffable and solid.

jredmond (5029) - Manhattan, New York, USA - APR 1, 2011
Cask at the Get Real NY Cask Ale Event with Andrew, Streets, Brendan, and Linh. Pours an amber body. Muted aroma and flavor - most likely due to the cask conditioning.
