Cask... Clear, dark, burnt orange ale with a small, creamy, light khaki head. Great retention. Subtle nose with gentle notes of mash, citrus and chocolate. Perfectly-balanced flavor. Mildly tangy and grainy. Light-bodied and slightly creamy with almost no carbonation. Finishes watery and tangy. Refreshing! If I were in the U.K. and ordered a pint of mild ale, this is what I would expect. Kevin has certainly righted the ship at Thoroughbreds. Exciting times for craft beer in Leesburg!
