American Best Bitter

Apparantly (I’ve never been here before so I am guessing slightly) this is part of the “Peachtree and 14th” rotating cask series at TAP, Peachtree Street, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Surprisingly light, golden colored beer that reminded me of a (recently) popular English Golden Ale in terms of its appearance. Low carbonation (as expected) but more thin head and lace than I was expecting.
Nice biscuit malts are present as I would I expect, and these do linger nicely into the aftertaste. Tasty brew with a smooth, drinkable character and I enjoyed this cask offering. It’s not very often that I get the chance to grab a pint of cask in Atlanta so this was a real treat. It may have skewed my review a little too, but nevertheless I still enjoyed it.
Two problems for me; It’s hop profile is too high for a Bitter, and it was $10 a pint! Bad value, it ought to be CHEAPER than the other 15 bottles and 15 taps in the place.
