You would think when one hosts a Cask Festival they would put forth one of their best beers.....not so, this is the worst Dix product ever, and also the worst at Caskival.Light brown,creamy beige head.Light malt nose. The light malt flavor would be bland except for the vinegary metallic flavor

On cask at 1st Vancouver Caskival. Cloudy dark brown, thick tan head. Acidic aroma, musty and earthy notes are prominent as well. Some citrus and more hoppiness than I usually associate with this style. Musty flavour as well with a metallic finish. A bit too earthy for my tastes.
