On cask at the brewpub in State College. Off-white colored head, good lacing. The aroma was pine and earthy, floral hops. The flavor followed the aroma in terms of hop profile, but the flavor featured some decent malt elements of fruity and woodsy notes. Overall a tad watery even on cask, decent still, just not better than that.

On handpump, at brewery. Pours a hazy amber body with a small wispy white head. Patchy lacing. Light floral hop nose with some toasty maltiness. Nice light and floral bitterness, short leafy hops on the finish. The malt is dry and toasty with touches of caramel. Thin and smooth mouthfeel, light carbonation, great cask conditioning. Overall, just a nice and sessionable Bitter. I could drink this all night long.

Sampled on cask at the brewery this beer poured a dark orange-caramel color with a large creamy tan head. The aroma was sweet, fuirty and floral hops with a touch of caramel. The flavor was bitter, tart and tangy with noted os floral hops and a vague fruitiness though a bit dry. The finish was medium length sour and hoppy. Decent.

I didn’t copy you, Adrian!! On cask at Otto’s Pub and Brewery. Pours a dark but clear orange-y amber colour. Aroma of watery hops, light citrus, and grains. Taste is much the same as the aroma.

Cask @ Otto’s. Pours a hazy, slightly pulpy orange color; creamy light-tan head with excellent retention and lacing that coats the glass; a gorgeous pour. Light aroma, showing tea, citrus, and a dry, toasty malt core. Medium mouthfeel: oranges, basic soft fruitiness, and touches of tea; slightly relaxed malt profile and edges, very soft carbonation; toastiness appears mid-palate and continues through the finish; sugar, toasty malts and solid amounts of fruit and lightly tannic tea.

Cask at brewpub. Poured a cloudy dull orange in color with a small tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet malts, fresh hops, some mild citrus fruit and a little bread. Tastes of English hops, bready, sweet but toasted malts, and light citrus fruit. Nice body and mouth feel. A solid bitter.
