Cask at GBBF 2009. Poured a amber colour with a small head. Plenty of carmel and citrus in the aroma. Flavour is malt with some citrus. Some roasted malt with a dry finish. Not a bad beer I liked it.

I got a growler of this from Stony Brook Beverage. I dont have much experience with cask style ales, but if this it what they are like, I am hooked! This was awesome. Dark bronze beer with not much head. Some malt flavor with hints of dried fruit.Pleasant and easy-drinking.

Cask@GBBF2009 (as Colonel Blides ESB). Amber colour, not much head. Aroma is wood, some fruits and a bit yeastylike earthy notes. Flavour is quite much the same. Balanced, but quite boring ESB.

Bottle at JoeMcphee’s. Pours an orange body with no head. Sweet hoppy earthy beer. A bit bready with some light fruit.

I can’t seem to find this beer anywhere else, so here it goes. This is a "cask ale". Amber in color, moderate carbonation. Malty, with a sight tinge of hops. Tasty. Seems quite strong, although I can’t find any infomation on their website about it. Will upload a photo. Has anyone else seen this beer? Was bought in Rochester, NY.

Cask@GBBF 2009. "As Colonel Blides ESB" Clear amber color, not much head. A bit glueish hoppy (grapefruit, mango) aroma. American hoppy flavor, some caramel and fruity notes. Light hoppy finish. Very American ESB.

Cask (gravity) at GBBF 2009, Day 2 @ 5.5%. Sold as Captain Blides ESB. Hazy amber - same colour as the Beer Works Boston Common sampled at the same time. Quite leafy hops, in reassonably generous measure. Fairly prominent bitterness. Pleasant and easy-drinking.

12 oz bottle. Pours a nice medium bright orange copper with a med head. Aroma is fruity esters, slight orange, mango almost, sweet light caramel and toffee with nuts. and light fruity and earthy hops. Flavor is toffee, caramel malts, light grassy and tea-like hops and moderately fruity- relatively smooth and easy drinking. Not bad.

Tap at the brewery. Pours a slight hazy light amber with a good sticky rocky head. Aroma is slightly fruity malty but tended to be more towards the floral hop side. Good smooth mouthfeel, with low carbonation. Nice malty flavor, slightly sweet, with a good bitterness to round it out. Very nice.
