GBBF Day 1. Cask. Hazy brown beer, a few pale tan bubbles. Palate is light and dry, modest carbonation. Dry dark malts bring a little dry dark chocolate. Mild roast. Dry floralness and dry orangey citrus on the finish. Not bad.
Cask at The Great British Beer Festival 2017, Kensington Olympia. A bit disappointingly weak and thin. Not bad flavour profile, but far too watered down. Beerhunter111 (21481) - P´Castle, GERMANY - AUG 8, 2017
