nuplastikk (4271) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 12, 2011
Cask at BP Dupont. Orange-brown. Filtered/fined. Soapy, frothy head. Fishy English aroma. Caramel toffee tones, no C02, all cask feel. Tastes refreshingly English but rather boring and lacking in the hop department. Watery, awkward caramel/toffee tones. Unexceptional.
