Cask gravity at the Watford beer fest 2014. Golden orange coloured pour with a loose white head. Aroma is dirty, skunky hop, mid sweet and some lemon citrus. Flavour is honey and caramel base malt, floral and grassy hop, semi sweet. Palate is fullish body, syrup and dirty grassy hop. OK but a bit rough round the edges.

JorgeLee (1268) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2014
Cask in the Bree Louise. Light golden with a hint of burnish. Another golden ale, claimed to be dry and hoppy so gave it a go. Actually not bad, crisp malt base with a hint of biscuit and then some pleasant hoppy flavours and a medium bitter finish. Pleasantly sessionable.
