Cask at the brewpub, served at room temperature. Clear light orange color with a nice big bubbly domed cask head. Pleasant flowery hop aroma reminiscent of rose hips. Flavor was similar and supported by a biscuity malt backbone.

Pint poured at Magnolia’s Brewpub in San Francisco, a cloudy light orange with a medium head. Aroma is strong of citrus fruits. A tangy flavour, but served too cold.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the San Francisco "Brews on the Bay" Festival. Very plae, light golden pour, frothy white head. Slighlty worty aroma, but not very prominent. Falvor is very "gluey" and artifical. No real bitterness whatsoever, rather bland. Not the best from this bunch
