Pint from cask. Clear dark amber with a small dense head. Aroma is malts, slightly nutty, hops and bread. Taste is sweet malts at first - biscuit and nuts. This turns into a dryer, bitter hopped finish.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2015
Cask from The Woodman, Durham. Pours deep amber verging on brown with thick, smooth, off-white head. I’d call it a perfectly drinkable but uninspired session bitter with caramel and biscuit notes and well balanced sweetness leading into a crisp, dry finish.

strap (981) - Sindelfingen, GERMANY - AUG 20, 2015
I’m a fan of the cask ales. Not a lot of complexity, but smooth and refreshing with a little bitter. Hops are well balanced
