I really thought I would like this beer more. The amber color suggested much more flavor than was present. No real taste here, just a little bitterness. My wife liked it so this almost always means it is not that good.

Cask offering at O’Neal’s Pub. The cask variety adds an element of sourness to the normally bitter nature of this beer. Nice woody, dried fruit aroma, more dried fruit in the taste. This is more of a sipper, bringing to mind dubbels and sours. Nice!

Disappointing. Extra dull, just nothing special about this beer. Bland, not hoppy, watered-down taste.

Crazy foamy pour that took forever to diminish - not sure if that’s standard. It has a nice malty aroma with just a hint of bitterness which is quite true tot the taste. It has an excellent light and creamy mouthfeel. A solid beer overall!

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
very drinkable. might be my favorite from yards... close match between this and the IPA.
aroma: nothing too special
palate: good first sip, even better finish.
overall: as a hop-lover, sometimes the IPAs can get tiresome. this is what I would consider a wonderful session beer.
