*CASK ALES
Cask ale is traditionally brewed and left to mature in the serving vessel. This type of ale may seem “flat” but the process that makes cask ale unique develops subtle flavors and aromas that processed beers can never provide. Because we don’t use pressurized gas to push these ales from tank to tap, it must be hand-pumped through the beer engine and aerated to produce a good head and release flavors. Served at traditional cellar temperature, cool but not chilled.

Sweet candied fruit aroma. Almost a hint of cherry on the nose. The palate has a slight candy feel with almost an oak barrel feel. Cloudy orange color. This beer definitely grew on me.

In taster from brewery. Looks clear and amber. Smells a bit wheaty. Tastes like a light amber ale with no hops. Pretty good for the style though. Overall 6 of 10.
