Cask conditioned at Tapping the Admiral, Kentish Town, London. Amber with white head. Malt lead beer, grainy with a dose of caramel, some sweetish toffee then a leafy bitterness. Decent enough considering the ABV.

kwik-lime (1647) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2012
My notes say formal aroma. I think that probably meant floral, damn auto-correct. This is nicely balanced with an earthy character but lacking big character and comes over a bit dull, if very drinkable. Fine as a session beer, if you’d want to session a 2.7% beer.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2012
Cask conditioned handpump Adelphi Leeds 02/05/12. An amber coloured beer with a tight white head. Nice berry fruity hops throughout. A noticeable lack of alcohol but the hop flavours are good. No sign of the usual Adnams house yeast flavour. An honourabkle beer.
