From growler. Pour is dark ruby red with no head. Nose is faint, green apple skin, light caramel malt, and some dark berry sweetness. Taste has more malt presence, chewy feel, a bit of nuttiness and some sweet caramel. Hints of green apple skin and a touch of plum. Very light carbonation, crisp finish.

thirdeye11 (5544) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 11, 2013
(Cask) clear, deep copper, nice offwhite lacing and head. Nose is quite fruity, peach, stone fruit, caramel, complex as anything, raisin, more but hard to describe it all. Taste is toasty, fruity, yeasty, complex, a little sweet, nice English noble hop bitterness on the palate finish and a rather medium-thick body that’s well carbonated nonetheless. Great cask ale.
