Cask at Hamilton Hall, JDW, London. Pours clear, yellow-orange with a frothy white head. Aroma holds some tangy melon, orange, wet grass and toasty dough. Light sweet flavor with faint spice reminiscent of ginger, mild doughy malts, some orange rind. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Fairly dry to finish, lightly sweet with a nice hop edge of grass and citrus, soft ginger essence, some biscuits and dough. A pretty solid effort here. Lots of character given the low ABV, and the balance is right on. Nicely done.
