3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Paradiso Dupont. Whoa- this is very good. Poured a clear amber with a dense, buttermilk, nitro head that you could lay a penny on top of. Excellent cask, nitro, poofy, sheety lace. Aroma is full of cinnamon toast, slight lemon, floral hops, nutmeg, caramel. Taste is English cask bitter with light Fuggles and EKG hops balancing a session amber body full of caramel, cinnamon, brown sugar, citrus peels, doughy malt. Voided of residual sweetness. Dry finish. Soft, beautiful carbonation. Excellent session beer.

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.

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.
