Craft Clerkenwell. Cask. Almost clear dark amber beer. Tidy off white head. Palate is smooth with light carbonation. Mild caramel in the malt base. Somewhat insipid marmalade hops. Redemption comes by way of some sweet candy fruits. Finishes neutral.

bhensonb (10688) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 17, 2013
Cask at The Market Porter. Pours light brown with a creamy beige head. Floral aroma. Med body. Flavor is very floral and has light chocolate malt. It finishes bitter, which may well be from the malt. Changed my mind. Now it seems a little sweet chocolate. Tongue fatigue?
