Cask at the Market Porter, London. Pours clear yellow with a sturdy, white froth for a head. Very light hay and pale malts in the nose. Light to medium sweet flavor with some straw, white sugar and faint floral notes, along with a bit of dry dough. Light in body with fine carbonation. Decent condition. Lightly drying to finish with biscuity pale malts, hay, light bitter straw. OK stuff in general. Pretty drinkable.
