Tame grassy hops and caramel malt idleness...Languid floral notes in good cask feel...Monotony in the form of a bitter...

Fruity and floral aroma. Deep red gold colour, thin beige head. Fruity flavours to start, mostly stone fruit and cherry, finishing with a pleasant, lingering floral bitterness. Medium bodied and slightly dry finish.

GregClow (3194) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 17, 2003
Colour is a little darker than the non-cask version. Aroma has more malt and hops, and the flavour has a nice hoppy bite. A nice pint indeed, makes me wish the pub wasn't so far from my house...

Dry hopped version of the best bitter. Served on a beer engine. A good real ale.
