3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On cask, poured into a stemmed bulb glass. The aromas are muted, which I expect from a cask pour, but they are still present, and clear; with notes of grass, pine, burnt toast, cooked citrus, and some floral qualities. It pours a hazy, full orange brown with a very soft, dense foam (typical of a cask) white head. It leaves a thick ring with a gummy looking surface and a solid sheet lace. The taste is medium / medium high sweet with a medium-light bitter. The texture is slick with a medium full body and a silk smooth carbonation. Notes of grass and pine combine with a burnt toast or wood and orange blossom finish. It drinks very smooth with a peppery, orange peel aftertaste.
