Cask at Lyric, Soho. It pours hazy amber with a medium off-white head. The nose is bitter-sweet, wood, brown bread, citrus fruits and faint jamminess. The taste is wood, earthy, varnish, resin, grapefruit zest and leaf with a pretty bitter finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Good level of bitterness, but fairly one-dimensional. OK.

not a bad beer at all could do with more hops in it to make it a true american ale, seems too malt dominated, very tasty though . one to look for.
