Cask (thanks to James) during the IoW Jolly Day 2014. It pours clear golden with pretty much no head. The nose is soft, juicy, peach and apricot. The taste is crisp, bitter, grapefruit rind, pepper, bready, grassy and some mild astringency with a dry finish. Light-medium body and low carbonation. Simple stuff. OK at best.
