Smells like fields but very subtle. Pungent hoppy taste. Dark yellow colour. Slightly cloudy. Not massively appealing. Tingly on the tongue. Won't be rushing to re-order. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask. I surprised that there is still such a strong market for disappointing bitter like this.
