Cask at the Crosse Keys, JDW. Clear yellow pour with almost no head. Faint aroma, bits of straw. Decent flavor, reasonably sweet, plenty of straw and cereal, some lagerishness in there, mildy bitter. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Pretty well balanced by the time the finish comes around. Some nice crackery malts and straw hops. Some faint soap, but no biggie. Decent.
