Cask, Far From The Madding Crowd, Oxford. Straw gold, powder-fine white head. Cinnamon and tangerine aroma, just a bit of green grass: all bright spring-like aromas. Crisp fine spicy hop flavor, a light toast finish. Delicate body, but a pleasant delicate, not thin. Bright pit-fruit esters. A real stunner at the 3.2% itís listed here.
