This beer is brewed in oak casks. I don't know what that does for it. It didn't taste overly unique. Has an amber colour to it. Its flavour isn't as some other English ales, but it's certainly not week. It has a bit of hoppiness to it, slight fruity taste. I found that if I didn't drink it all in say 15 minutes the tastes became kind of stale and undesirable. But that doesn't need to be a problem. I liked it, but nothing really made it more than above average for me as far as English ales go.
