It is a very satisfying experience to twist the nozzle and see and hear beer pouring into the glass. I particularly like the swooshing sound as the beer fills the glass. It’s a completely different experience to opening and pouring a bottle/can for one. There is an anticipation that this beer will be shared and what could be better than having a shared experience with friends or family with a really tasty beer and knowing there are 9 pints in the cask!
Visual: Rich glowing golden colour.
Head: Loose white and frothy.
Aroma: A citrus grove! Juicy tangerine & orange blossom, with malted biscuits underneath.
Flavour: The dominant flavour is citrus – a mixture of orange, tangerine, and grapefruit. Cedar pine is also apparent with a subtle herbal character. These flavours overlay the malted biscuit base.
Texture/mouthfeel: Smooth on the palate.
Taste: Lingering bitterness.
Finish: Long and bitter. The beer’s citrus flavours last on the tongue.
