On pump at Tereaas, recommended to me by Cliff. Pours golden brownish color with medium to large frothy head. Aroma and flavor are dank pineapple, bitter pine, and a beautiful malt bill. Really surprised how nice this English cask offering was. The cascade and centennial brought some nice bitterness to the pineapple citra funk. Medium bodied. they had me at "industrial sized hookah"

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at The Holy Inadequate, Etruria. A slightly hazy amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma is quite chemically of grapefruit, pine, resin, orange and some floral notes. Taste of bitter grapefruit, apricot, orange, pine and a hint of caramel sweetness. Medium bodied and an oily texture. A citrusy bitter finish. A hoppy but heavy APA, ok though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a cask at the 2015 Atlanta Cask Ale Tasting.
Feel: Medium-light body with light carbonation.
Clear amber, but not good clarity, with a sudsy head.
Very hoppy for a pale ale, so hoppy it could pass for a American Psle Ale or even an IPA. Fruity, herbal and floral.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pretty pale without actually being anaemic this tastes just like all the other Dark Star beers that I’ve tried. Aroma and flavour overpoweringly of citrus and a very long, very sharp bitter finish. A bit too strong to be refreshing. Well made but the citrus just turns me off.
