4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
In short: As good as a cask English Bitter can be.
How: Tap at Clark’s Ale House, Syracuse NY
The look: Clear golden body with a medium off-white head
In long: Although classified as an IPA here this is to me an English Bitter. Smooth as smooth can be. Little airy bubbles in a soft caramelized body. Light orange flavour. Hopping has a dry tree leaves character. Rivals with the best English Bitters on cask I had on cask in England. I couldn’t believe how quickly I drank my pint. Noting fancy, nothing innovative but man that pint was good. The best way I found to get a taste of England without having to deal with the England food.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask hand pull at Clark’s, Syracuse. Amber with one-finger white head that lasts, big bubbles. Nice appearance. Nose is indistinct, some caramel and toffee, dusty and grassy hops. Taste a bit insipid: toffee, biscuit, a slight touch of citrus. Aftertaste mildly malty. Creamy, low carbonation on the palate.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brewed specifically for Clark’s Ale House in Syracuse, and had on cask there at the real ale festival. Good hop scent. Light gold colour with a bit of bubbles on top. Batch went very quickly. Mild and light mouthfeel. A bit better than average as far as the cask ales I have tried.
