UPDATED: MAY 4, 2013 Draft at Get Real NY Cask Ale Event with Linh, Andrew, Streets, and Brendan. I was let down a bit from this one, but maybe it would be better sampled from a bottle rather than cask. RERATE: at Alla spina with pat and PJ. Pours a hazy amber body with white lacing. Aroma is fresh, crisp grassy hops.

Pours orange with smallish, bubbly head. Light, grassy hops, some fruitiness with a dry bitter finish. Well-balanced and pleasant although the flavours werenít of stand-out strength, this is an excellent session ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask version at Winking Lizardís 3rd Annual Real Ale Fest (03/26/11): This brew is a hazy orange-yellow color with a thin off-white head that evaporates quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of tropical fruits and malt. Medium body with flavors of grainy malt, fruit and hops. The finish is fruity with a sweet aftertaste. Decent overall.

Churchkey, DC cask ($7): Pours a really pale color for an American Pale Ale; has a white head. Aroma is of fruity hops and some grass. Because this was out of the cask, it obviously had less carbonation. Was a pretty bitter beer in a classical British style. Not at all full-bodied. I thought it was good and very easy to drink, but I do not think that it was a great beer, even though it didnít seem to have any overt faults.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A lightly hazed blonde with a thin white head. In aroma, faint grassy hops. In mouth, a rather lemony citra-like pale ale with crisp malt, grapefruits in finale, quite nice. Cask at Get Real NY, March 19th 2011.

cask @ redlight redlight. Tropical fruits on the nose, melon, starfruit, and grapes. Pours golden blonde with a thick white head. Grassy flavors upfront with hints of pine and an earthy bitterness with hints of catty hops. Great hop flavors.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium, dense, light-yellow head, over clear golden beer. Some shards of lace. Fruity (passion fruit, grapes, nectarines, flowery - oh, say Nelson Sauvin), but also manure, thankfully mainly volatile. Bitter-hoppy flavour, with a Pilsner streak, but above all with a very fruity finish - the same fruit as mentioned above. Retronasal some arachide, and a link to the manure, if very discreet. Light, spritzy beer. Nelson Sauvin rules.

Thanks to Jim for bringing this to Dmacís...and for EZant for recommending it. Pours out like a wit beer. Aroma is of grapefruit, citrus and light grains. Taste is of nice citrusy grapefruit, light grass and some lingering grainy and sweet malt notes, but the hops take the front seat. Body is a bit thin, but other than that this was a solid brew.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2011 Location: Cask at Gaslight, 3/19/11
Aroma: This one has a nice fresh peach and grassy hop nose to it
Appearance: It pours a fairly golden color with a rather big head for a cask offering
Flavor: The flavor is not quite as hoppy, but it is a decent flavor though
Palate: This one is medium bodied with a smooth and fairly dry finish
Overall, I though that this was a decent pale, but nothing exceptional. The nose is the stand-out here, but the rest of the beer doesnít live up to that first impression.

This particular pint had a haze, The aroma was very over powering. It was different to anything i have tasted before. I only had the one pint. I could still taste the bitterness the next day, This was at the bell harborne
