On cask at Rustico in Alexandria, VA. Review from notes.
The beer is a hazy light orange color with a white head that leaves ample lacing on the glass. The aroma brings some citrus, bread, biscuits, malt. Lots of bready characteristics in the flavor with a lingering hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is nice, as is typical with a cask ale. Overall, a decent beer.

22 ounce bottle. Thanks Ryan! Pours a somewhat cloudy pale gold with a nice fluffy white head. Great lacing. Aroma of florals, citrus, and malt. Taste is florals, citrus, pine, and malt. Nice balance. Somewhat dry at the finish. Very nice.

Cask at CK. Clear low haze orange. Small white foam. Nose is oxidized red apple slices. Taste is astringent, nutty, very watery with sweet white grape juice. Palate is powdery, bitter, nutty. Slightly harsh. Minerally. Uhhh.

Cask. Great aroma of hops. Pour had a nice head with cloudy amber body, nice lacing through drink. Nice hoppy taste with a smooth texture. Tastes like a fresh hop beer.

22oz bottle from richdorchak, thanks Rich! Pours a clear darker gold colored body with an inch thick, foamy, off-white head that collapses slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is crisp hops and pale malts with a light bready sweetness balancing a mixture of herbal pines, citruses, and florals. Flavor is similar. Crisp herbal hops with some pines and florals giving off a light citrus with some pineapple, grapefruit, and lemon sticking out. Dry pale malts with a touch of bready sweetness to balance the medium bitterness before this completely dries and leaves a lengthy aftertaste. Light body and a fairly lively, medium level of carbonation that helps with the crispness. Overall, a decent pale ale. Pretty well hopped with a decent hop mix balanced by a light, crisp pale malt backing. Nothing special, but enjoyable enough.

Light amber pour with a small white head. Lots of herbal pine and citrus peel with scallion like onion notes and biscuity caramel malt. Too much toffee in the flavor for my liking- bordering on buttery. Medium body with a resinous and moderately sticky finish.

Nice golden pour with aromas of bread or hay, and some citrus. Taste is semi-sweet, some soft bitterness and, not sure, maybe coriander? Dry, bitter finish, smooth, and light bodied. Great session ale. Very drinkable with plenty of flavor.
