On Tap & Cask at the Brewery-On Cask-Clear amber pour w/no head. Woodsy, malt aroma w/some toffee & yeast. This cask was served a little warm, even by cask standards, but it was quite good. Cask treatment allowed malt to shine thru. On draft it was cloudier, and the carbination muted it a bit. Score is for the cask treatment.
