Light hoppy aroma. Flavour has a bit of citrus hop and a slightly sickly aftertaste. It’s a bog standard bitter really. Drinkable but nowt special.

Cask (Blue Moon, Cambridge)
Lightish copper, brief head. Rich grainy aroma that hints towards some of the Lithuanian traditional ales. Clear husky and raw barley in both aroma and taste. Nice branny finis, and some nice acidity to the resins too - are you sure there’s no rye here? Palate is watery and, from the bitterness, slightly drying. Has character and can either be sessioned or sipped. Nice one - I like the bran/rye/husks.
