Cask (Cask P&K, London)
Not getting much on the nose. Indistinct beer ingredients. Pale, small head. Light grain body. Nice bitter resiny finish, but fundamentally not an exciting beer. Some grapefruit.

Cask conditioned handpump Wenlock Arms London. This was dry hopped with Centennial. A yellow blonde beer which poured with no head. Good centennial orangey citrus aroma. Decent hoppy mouth with good citrus notes but a little too much grassiness. Not really perfectly balanced but tasty enough.

Cask at the Jolly Anglers, Reading. Rather puzzled by this, I was expecting a golden ale, but was given something more like a hefeweisen, but jolly good nevertheless. Poured a murky straw colour with a thin white head; aroma of citrus with a hint of coriander; refreshing, sweet grapefruit flavour; tart, zesty, grapefruit finish with a touch of spices. This probably needed more time in the cellar - I’ll have to try it again!
