UDBeernut (1822) - Moving to Jax, Florida, USA - APR 25, 2012
Pours orange amber white head good retention. Nose is malt and faint flowers. Toasted and pale malt gently give way to flowers and light bitterness on the finish. Drinkable light to medium body. Ok.

ben4321 (4066) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Location: Cask at Beer Culture, 8/11/14

Aroma: It has a pretty dull nose with some toffee/caramel notes, toast, not much else
Appearance: It pours a clear orange color with a small, creamy head on top
Flavor: The taste is dull and light, a little malty sweetness, mild fruit, little else
Palate: The body is light and a little thin, a little lacking overall in mouthfeel
Overall Impression: I wasn’t all that impressed by this one. It’s thin, and there just isn’t much here. There’s no major flaw or anyhing, it doesn’t taste shunky, but it just lacks overall. That thinness shows the downside of cask, as there’s nothing to hide the lack of body.
