Sampled @ GBBF day 3. Lightly hazy yellow to light orange color, small off-white head. Smell and taste malts, lightly bitter, slightly buttery and something weird I cant put my finger on, but strangely enough it reminds me of meat... Average to medium body and carbonation.

Ferris (13199) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 14, 2014
Cask - Skunky and dirty twig. Hazy gold with no head. Tastes as it smells. Too light and a root bitterness that lingers. Not a fan.
