cask conditioned-on tap-pours a creamy light tan head that laces with amber/orange color and plenty of effervescence. Aroma is a barely noticeable hops. Creamy mouthfeel, with a taste of well water that has an overload of chemicals/minerals, then malt.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at the pub. Orange-golden pour with the largest head of the sampler, clingy white and creamy. Also the most robust nose of the sampler, some light yeast and slightly stronger English hops. Taste/body are smooth and creamy with a little too much play from the yeast, and the sinking suspicion that the tap line hasn’t been cleaned recently. Like the hop interplay here.

On tap at the brew pub. Pours a translucent golden amber with no head…on cask. Aroma of iced tea, floral, some toffee and lightly sweet nutty malt. Flavor of hops, some caramel malt, cereal grains, watery and thin. As with some of their other beers…aroma on the light side.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
This has been a great favorite beer for years. Yellow orange in color, with a fluffy white head from the hand pump. A slight fresh hop aroma. Malty brew with a good hop balance. Light and smooth. Easy to drink, and a great beer to pound when you are staying for a long time and do not want to get hammered.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at brewery. Low head, guessing this means no sparkler?? Aroma: mild fruits, all mingled, slight hops, slight biscuits. Enticingly subtle. Taste: warm melon, low carbonation, pears, little hop presence, nice smooth toasty aftertaste. Good orange color. Big problem here is the mouthfeel, it’s way too thin and doesn’t seem to have any roundness. Nice flavors, but not delivered well by the body of the beer.
