Away we go

2020-11-14 (+20): Went for cask(keg)-conditioned and serving from the nitro tap for that 'fresh from the cask' experience. Taste is nutty with a firm bitterness and slight bit of sweetness in the finish. Like a Märzen that hasn't fully lagered yet. 

2020-11-29 (+35): Another pour shot. bit more clear now. Tasting nice and clean with solid malty character.
