imdownthepub (10124) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2011
Cask conditioned at The Market Porter, Borough, London. Gold with white head. This was a fresh, crisp, quite clean hoppy beer, maybe a little lagery, lemony perhaps, but certainly very decent on a warm summer evening stood out the front of the Market Porter. Lovely.
