Cask, gravity, at Wellington Arms Winter Festival of Ale. Gold. Slightly nondescript fruit aroma. Taste has an unattractive cardboard overtone. Slight bitterness. Having written that I found the cardboard gradually transformed itself into a rather nice fresh apple peel aroma, and my rating climbed accordingly.
