Cask at the Harp. It pours clear amber with a medium white head. The nose is cereal, floral, butter, creaminess, light toast and white sugar. The taste is straw, wood, floral, grainy, caramel, some astringency and varnish with a dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. A very so-so golden ale.
