Cask at Meridian Pint. Surprise surprise, incorrectly conditioned. Flat tea amber pour. No carbonation. Nose is a bit diacetyl with sticky maple. Taste is wort and nutty. Small diacetyl and chemical. Slick margarine and oily palate. Butter bomb. Nail polish remover as well in the nose as it warms. Eh. Oh god. Bleh.

A nice twist, a touch of honey keeps the alcohol at bay while decent malt makes for a good combination. A fun ale.
