3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the pub with argo0, MRomero548, and Degarth...once we found it:
A hazed unfliltered coppery hue with small lace. The aroma has notes of apricot, apple, bready malts, and floral hops. A zesty grapefruit and apple twang with some caramel and rye characteristics and a malty midesection. There is however a noticeable diacetyl nature to the brew that keeps it from being much better. The feel is smooth has expected with some metallic notes on the aftertaste. I liked it but then again I like cask bitters. (FYI, this place has a GREAT selection of single malt scotch!)

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
On cask into shaker glass. Hazy yellow orange in the glass with a medium sized fizzy head. Grapefruit and flowery hops smell. Bubble gum flavor right off the bat (like that pink liquid medicine I used to take as a kid), followed by some weak hops. Acidic and sweet in the finish with some weak metallic hops dryness. Nice body.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Yeasty (warm-like), wet bread-dough nose. Had a musty, cleaning-product, wet rag type of smell/aroma to it that was a big turn off. Malts were pretty musty too. Yeast seemed to dominate, and made it hard to enjoy the malts or hops.
