Cask; ruby brown, moderate white head; aroma of caramel, lightly toasted malts; taste is also malty, slightly sweet, light toast; smooth mouthfeel; dark berries and a little twiggy; reminded me initially of ryvita cracker bread; chocolate notes came to the fore later in the drink and in the moderate bitter finish; likeable.

Balanced finish with more citrusy now but underscored by fundamental, brown bread malts. A very drinkable bitter.
