Dchobbs (33) - Texas, USA - MAR 17, 2011
From what I remember, this was a pretty copper/goldish ale with a quickly disapating eggshell head. Aroma of caramel malt and not too much else, palate was relatively light/medium with a pretty soft finish as it came from the cask. Taste was not spectacular, but far from terrible. Had a taste of toast and oil with a bit of hoppiness. Swear I tasted saltwater as well in the aftertaste. Good beer.

Cask @ Angleterre, Helsinki. Poured hazy copper color with a soapy white head. Bready, fruity aroma. Flavor is slightly bitter and nutty, malty. Slightly bitter finish. Bit watery, still quite enjoyable.
