Cask; Regular.

With all the glow of a midsummer sunrise, this popular golden ale is a thirst quenching and complex beer with a truly broad appeal. Lightly bitter, subtly floral, and buzzing with zesty citrus, soft fruits and spices – it benefits greatly from the Cascade hop from which it takes it’s name.

PartyBear (29) - Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2009
Got this on cask from my local (The Bull, Bracebridge Heath, Lincoln). Appearance: Pours with a light amber colour and a decent creamy white head. No apparent carbonation. Aroma: Sweet and fruity on the nose, with slightly nutty malts in the background. Taste: There is a definite floral bitterness to the taste. Very big on the hops, with a perfumy twang. There is also mild fruity citrus flavours behind the bitter hops. Mouthfeel: This is a medium bodied bitter, delivering a slightly chewy, flat feel. Drinkability: This is the first beer I have had from the Oldershaw Brewery, even though I have lived about 20 miles from the brewery my whole life. Anyway, a decent offering on cask, refreshing and flavoursome.

Mothbag (16) - USA - JUL 27, 2009
Bottle conditioned from Doddington Farm Shop near Lincoln, Lincs. Golden to dark beer poored clear and flat, almost like it was direct from the cask. A good bottle conditioned beer. Slight earthy taste, but still good.
