[Cask at GBBF 2005] A hazy brown beer with no head. The aroma is sweet and hoppy - and so is the flavor, while the mouthfeel is somewhat sticky. Hmm - I wonder if the carbonation in the bottled version would make this better than casked?

Slightly hazy amber beer, tiny off white head. A little malt depth and some cream. Super mild hops - trace of orange. Light crisp finish. It’s fine but undeniably bland.
