Half pint cask pour at the brewpub in St Paul, Minnesota. Pours is a hazed golden orange with a loose off white cask head. Aroma is pleasant soft and fresh earthy floral hops, along with a mild toasty malt. Nice fresh nose, just faint. Taste is a really nice balance between the earthy floral softly bitter hops and the toasted malt - simple clean and fresh. Palate is medium bodied, soft natural carbonation, mild bitter finish - along with some unique yeast notes.

Draft @ Brewpub: Bronze, nice head and lacing. Nose of vegetal hops and biscuity sweet malts. The flavor is nicely hopped, more on the nose though. Finishes robust and malty with a clean very British feel to it.
