Cask-conditioned at the Three Tuns, Bristol where this was a festival special. Chestnut brown with a decent, off-white head. Massive, herbal hop aroma, no doubt influenced by use of a ’Randall’ with some slightly roast, sweetish malts. Flavour dominated by more green hops, a touch of roastiness with some pine, leading to a bone dry finish. A brute, but pleasant nonetheless.
