Cask at Clybourn. Pours orange with a large white foamy head. A good amount of grapefruit and pine in the aroma. The taste is malt forward with a very slight hop presence and mild bitter finish. Jokes (1455) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 13, 2006
Slightly hazy golden orange with a large layer of moderately sized bubbles. A mild aroma of biscuity malt, lemons and oranges, mild pale malt and a touch of graininess. Fairly straight forward mild hop aroma with hints of malt laying underneath. The wood doesn’t seem to add much in the nose at all. The body is fairly full, especially considering the ABV, and smooth on the tongue giving little carbonation.. The flavor starts sweet and shows the malt briefly before a wave of mild bitterness washes through and awakens the tongue. The finish is quick and refreshing, leaving the tongue happy and the thirst slaked. This would be a nice session beer for a day of watching footy.
