2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nitro at RFD. Was expecting an english ale, so imagine my surprise at this sour bomb. Once I adjusted my expectations I began to enjoy it, but the glass was nearly empty by then. Served copper with a huge creamy head. Big sour aroma, big sour flavor with a decent malt profile and bread. Bitter finish. Not sure what to make of this.

This beer was very very sour. It had a huge flavor of sour cherry and was a little bit hard to drink. Interesting, but not great.

Nitro pour at RFD. Comes a lightly hazy, copper orange amber with a very creamy, lacing white head. Aroma is malty, lightly fruity, lightly spicy. Flavor is all malt, grains, a little bread, some light citrus, a little pepper. Medium bodied, sweet finish. Nice and sessionable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at Churchkey. Golden color, 3 bubble head, not much lacing. Aroma of malt and black pepper. Taste resembles a best bitter more than a blonde, perfect for a cask ale. Dry bitter finish. Very nice.

A very nice ale. It’s got a nice balance of malty sweet and some bitter hops while keeping a very smooth mouth feel. It was very easy drinking, and while it was hoppy for a golden ale, it was very smooth.
