Cask at GBBF 2009. Poured a amber colour with a small head. Plenty of carmel and citrus in the aroma. Flavour is malt with some citrus. Some roasted malt with a dry finish. Not a bad beer I liked it.

Cask ale from a bottle ... hmm ... Pours a deep yellow. Nose is toast, orange peel. Flavor is faint at best. Some toast malt and hints of citrus. setauketone (10) - setauket, New York, USA - AUG 12, 2009
I got a growler of this from Stony Brook Beverage. I dont have much experience with cask style ales, but if this it what they are like, I am hooked! This was awesome. Dark bronze beer with not much head. Some malt flavor with hints of dried fruit.Pleasant and easy-drinking.

(as Colonel Blides ESB). Amber colour, not much head. Aroma is wood, some fruits and a bit yeastylike earthy notes. Flavour is quite much the same. Balanced, but quite boring ESB.

Bottle at JoeMcphee’s. Pours an orange body with no head. Sweet hoppy earthy beer. A bit bready with some light fruit.
I can’t seem to find this beer anywhere else, so here it goes. This is a "cask ale". Amber in color, moderate carbonation. Malty, with a sight tinge of hops. Tasty. Seems quite strong, although I can’t find any infomation on their website about it. Will upload a photo. Has anyone else seen this beer? Was bought in Rochester, NY.
