I dunno. I think it's really down to personal preference. Maybe you just don;t care for cask ale.

I personally can;t stand the high levels of carbonation for FarmHouse and Belgian styles of beer. Love the flavors of them. I don;t think they are worth drinking until they have had a chance to gas off to something closer to 2.0 - 2.5 vols.

The DFH 75 at the simulcask was phenomenal. My first cask ale. The temperature was warmish and it was less carbed than what I am used to...but the flavor...wow. Of course that is an over the top beer, I'd love to try a "normal" cask ale sometime.
