3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at the brewpub. Nice dark amber/copper pour. Aroma is malty, lots of caramel, a bit of something like boozy fruits. Taste is sweet, lots of caramel, light toasted notes, lacks bitterness (and desperately needs a little hop kick). Palate is thin with med (cask) carbonation. Ok.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask @ the Fiddler, small sample. Slight hazy amber color, short head. Aroma of grainy malt, herbal, slight earthy hop. Bit bitter in taste, malty. A bit too malty, not clean enough. and a weird extra herbal smell makes it not really good.
