chinchill (3117) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 24, 2015
From a cask at the 2015 Atlanta Cask Ale Tasting. Pours hazy yellow amber with a durable but very bubbly head. Strange spicy biscuit aroma. The flavor is more as expected with a dominant light toasted grain component and light spicing. The ’spice’ [yeast] is still strange but works well. Fine soft feel with a medium body.
