Cask at The Market Porter. Pours a clear gold with a white head. Aroma has a light, biscuity malt, lemon zest, orange peel and a light musty thing. Light to medium body, mild carbonation, a touch thin. Light marmalade, lemon, wood, pine, grapefruit, a hint if caramel. Dry bitter finish. OK.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light amber with a small cream head. Good layered aroma, but a little lacking in volume, notes of spicy hops, citrus peel, slight woodiness and some juicy tropical fruits. Nice fitting body, but a little under carbonated. Good initial pale malt backbone followed by hop flavour that is dominated by spicy hops and citrus fruit. Sadly the lovely flavours are a little fleeting, however the beer is rounded off by and enjoyably dry and moderately bitter finish.

Bottle purchased in Coniston. The best IPA I have tried in a while. Spicy, fruity, dry and not too bitter. Citrus and a little pine coming through but not overpowering like some of the American IPAs. My only criticism would be that it is too easy drinking for a 6% beer, though that is probably more of a compliment than a criticism. Absolutely lovely.

Cask@Derby Winter Beer Festival 2013. Amber beer with a strongish head. The aroma is grassy with hops, and the flavour is well hopped with fruity and gingerness. Overall a very nice hopped beer with spice and ginger.
