Cask at the Crosse Keys, JDW. Golden pour withb a foamy, white head. Sharp, baked malts on the nose. Lightly sweet flavor, oddly smokey, lightly, with hints of ham and band-aids. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Modestly sweet finish, some bread and crisp malts, faint bitterness. I can dig it.

A very light ale, slighty fruity with quite a bitterish hop finish. Just a whisper of smoke. Inoffensive and easy to drink.
