Cask at Craft Beer Co. It pours golden yellow, with a thick white head. The nose is sweet kiwi, pineapple, white sugar, candyfloss, bubblegum and glazier cherry. The taste is full of tangy tropical fruit, hay, straw, resin, floral, dough and alcohol warmth, with a long bitter-dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Decent.
