The beer was amber in color with a real solid creamy white head. The smell was nutty. The taste was nutty and caramel with some mixed fruit flavors coming in. This was a very, very good beer and the mouthfeel was amazing. I was expecting a hop bomb given the name but it was really well balanced and excellent. Easily drinkable and highly recommended.

On cask @ the brewpub Clear orange with small creamy light beige head. Aroma of pine, citrus and light caramel. Flavor has some light caramel and more fruity dry hop goodness, and a hint of Pine-Sol. Bitterness is at a 5. Scant carbonation with a medium body. Pretty good.

Cask @ Brewery - This is delicious! Has kind of a sugary sweet maltiness, with lots of juicy fruitiness. Tastes really fresh and clean, with an earth dry malt body. Great lignering bitter finish.

On tap at the brewery. Candy malt with slight hop note aroma. Very malty and slippery body with a lemon candy flavor surround by Cascade hops in the finish and through it with a decent lingering. Could use a little body.

I had the cask conditioned version of this beer - hand drawn from Old English tap that used compressed air (basically nitrogen). Excellent aroma of mild hops and very smooth to drink.
