4 oz sample at Churchkey. Cask. Clear dark amber, bubbly large head. Aroma is nutty, butter, cream. Taste of mild nutty malt, bread. I’m not a huge fan of cask beers usually but this one is pretty good, it’s not overly thing, but still thinner than I am used to obviously.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: On tap at the Pratt Street Ale House, 9/6/09
Aroma: Caramel malts mostly, some nuttiness
Appearance: Brown color, dark beige head
Flavor: Similar to the nose, malty up-front, and a bit of hops in the finish 6/7
Palate: Medium-body 3/4
Found this to be a decent brown, the hops in the finish improved the flavor and added some balance to the all malt nose. A decent beer.
