Cask. Poured a cloudy copper, with nice soft carbonation. Carbonation from cask yielded a nice head and a little lace. Nose was woodsy, hoppy citrus, and caramel malt. Taste was similar, with a nice mix of hop, caramel, and oak. Comparing this to the oak IPA, this is less hoppy and a little less developed. That said, this is still an excellent oak-aged cask ale. Mouth was lightly carbonated. Overall, a very solid ale.
