29th May 2008. ’Belgian Style Ale’ said the blurb. Hmmm. Really just a mildly hopped ale. Very easy drinking.

Cask gravity at Nottingham BF 2007. Gold with thin white head. Incredibly smooth. Doesn’t taste of 6%. Some nice citrusy fruits, some hop sting on end. Like Summer Lightning used to be. Good condition fruits are like pink grapefruit, very fleshy. Excellent.
