Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - golden with a generous fluffy head. Nose - shortbread and lemon. Taste - dry biscuits, toffee, decent lemon zip on the finish. Everything quite well integrated. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - yeah, enjoyed this.

chinchill (2901) - 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.
