light golden color, small amount of citrus on the nose, felt like this could do with more hop bit light in flavor and not much else there.
Ok pint in the sun but think there are better pale ales out there

Cask (JDW, Uxbridge, pre-RBESG2011)
Slightly sweet aroma, very bland. Decent hoppy body. Orangy fruity malts. OK balance, but lacking cispness. However, finish is quite sulfury hops and lasts a while. OK, I guess.

GBBF Cask. Finally catching up with this one after it was the only beer I missed from Spoons winter fest 2010! Hazy gold beer, decent suddy white head. Tiny bit of sulphur. Some raw tasting malt. A little grapefruit hops. Semi dry finish. The wait wasn’t worth it!
