Cask. An amber beer with a lazing orangey head. The aroma has notes of caramel and malt as well as a light note of nuts. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and caramel, as well as lighter notes of nuts and flowery hops, leading to a bitter finish.

(cask) clear copper colour with a very small white head. somewhat bland aroma of grass, earth, grain and a light hint of cherries. flavour is the same, slightly spicy, with a clean grainy profile and a bold herbal-hoppy finish. medium-bodied with soft to average carbonation.

pours a deep dark, ruby red meets golden yellow, although yellow + red do not equal orange at all. Make sense?
The aroma is next to nothing.
The mouthfeel could definitely be described as smooth - although a little short and watery.

Cask @ the "other" Royal Oak in Bath, on Pultney Rd. Bright amber with small head and lace. Brisk earthy, malty aroma. Smooth palate. Great balanced flavors. Excellent bright hop profile is herbal and bitter. Straightforward and good hoppy bitter.

On Cask at The Shakespeare in London. Pour was medium copper in color with a nice white head. Aroma was lightly hopped with a litle citrus and spice accompanied by just a little bready malt. The flavor was nice and bitter, but the complexity of the hops was a bit one dimensional. The malt was real light, which allowed the hops to become a bit over powering. I like hops a lot, so I still enjoyed the beer, and at 4%, I would have been able to drink many of them.

Hand pulled at the Dog, Warley. Amber bitter, quite boring. Opens with a strong flavour of nothing, but does close with quite a pronounced maltiness. Rather dry, but with hints of cake - perhaps shortbread. A reasonable quaffer, not exciting for me.
