Cask at Blue Boar, Billericay. Pours a dark amber with a loose white head. A floral aroma with grapefruit notes. This beer skips over the palate leaving a light dusting of zesty lemon citrus with a grapefruit undercurrent that builds and bursts into a deliciously dry and citrussy aftertaste resonant of cracker biscuit and pithy grapefruit. A beautifully light and refreshing IPA that is subtley American in style and all the better for that as it maintains a little Bristish reserve.

Cask. Beautiful golden color with a small, creamy white heap. US west coast hops on the nose, a bit piney, grassy. The taste is subtly sweet, some orange peel. Slightly hop-forward but not over bearing. Light body, soft mouthfeel, subtle carbonation. Overall, a very pleasant pint.

[Cask at Wetherspoons, Milton Keynes] Pale amber, slight white head. Traopical fruit, grapefruit, loads of pine - rather like the Roosters Last Stand I’d had just before, but with the piney hops stepped up, and more and slightly darker malts to provide rather more balance and a richer mouthfeel than the Roosters had. Best at this ’Spoons fest for me. Another great beer from Adnams - surely the best regional brewer in the land?

Loved this - not really a cask beer as more carbonation would have lifted but really strong hop flavour, all american stuff. Top banana.
