Cask, Hoylake Lights JDW. Amber looks with a small beige head. Enticing piney hops and orange peel present in the beak. Sweet malts, grapefruit, earth and excellent hoppage unfolded in the flavour. Solid bitterness and quality throughout. Better than any Adnams beer I’ve ever tasted. Great stuff, an oasis in a sea of spoons mediocrity.

Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms, Bristol 21/8/2014. Copper in colour with a decent, off-white, head. Big, hoppy aroma of grapefruit and pineapple, with some resin and touch of sweetish malts. Flavour had crisp mlats, much more tropical fruit and ended with a dry kick. Excellent.
