patrick767 (3590) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 20, 2010
cask - Pours mostly clear gold with a lasting white head that laces heavily. It smells of bready malt and oddly I got a whiff of sulfur. The flavor is sweet bready malt with mild, lingering hops bitterness. It’s a decent, unremarkable brew.
