Served on tap (non dry-hopped) and cask (dry-hop variants). A great session Drop of lotion to oil all the parts. Summer ale brewed all year round. An extremely pleasant, straw colored beer with a gorges fresh, hoppy aroma. This, coupled with an ample bitterness, leads to a long, dry finish.

On cask at the brewery. Golden orange and clear appearance with a light tan head that lingers and sticks. Aroma of fresh hops, floral notes, light herbs, earthy notes and pale malts. Crisp, medium bitterness and light sweetness. Average body with a lingering hoppy finish. Good.

Bubbly head, light amber, just a touch of haze. Aroma is actually not strong, light, lacks bitterness, but the hops are just fruity and the slightly doughy pale malts are probably the best thing about it. Ok, but I was disappointed by this one.

On tap @ Hogshead. Pours a clear golden color with a white head. Sweet pale malt, bread, and toasted malt. Grassy hops, a touch of straw, and some floral notes. Flavor is kind of grassy and bitter. Decent malt sweetness of bread, toast, and dough. Light fruit ester and some mild herbs.

Half pint draft at Hogshead in Denver, Colorado. The pour is mostly clear yellow golden with a nice 1/2 inch white head that left behind nice lacing. The aroma is lightly sweet malt, a cracker crispness, and a grassy hay hop element. The taste is cracker malt nicely balanced with the grassy hop character. Very light amount of malt sweetness shows as the beer warms. The palate is light bodied, with nice bright carbonation and a crisp clean finish. Another super easy drinking beer from Hogshead.

On cask and dry-hopped with East Kent Goldings. Light bright yellow-orange, sudsy head. Brief citrus like smell, nice aroma. Flavor is just a solid English ale, malty yet a hint of hops, easy drinking, delicious. I wish I could be more nuanced and descriptive but this was just flat out a good session beer.
