3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Euston Tap. Pale blond, slightly hazy with small fluffy white head. Aroma is lemon hoppy, bit floral and just a touch of creaminess. Taste is lemon and when the yeast is in, very biscuity malt. Quite crisp. Not bad and quite drinkable.

Cask at CP&K. It pours straw yellow, with a thin white head. The nose is citrus pith, resin, cheese and wood. The taste is oily green hop, pine, resin, touch of astringency, lemon, lime and citrus pith, with a dry finish. Thin to medium body and soft carbonation. Ok, but not Arbor’s best.
