2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Hand-pulled pint in my local Wetherspoons on 12 Apr 2012.
Golden to light amber in colour with a thin white head that didn’t hang around too long.
The aroma was fruity, leaning towards the citrus end of the fruit basket.
The taste was also leaning to a bittering almost sour citrusy feel, my notes kept saying ’grapefruit’ and that is my main memory of this brew.
Sharp and refreshing: but not what I want in a UK bitter (not enough malt content for my palate).

Cask (Gravity dispense) at 7th Bexley Beer Festival on 12 April 2012. Clear gold. Excellent condition. Very clean and fresh. Fairly tart and astringent with fruity notes. Strong citrus throughout. Distinctly firm mouthfeel. Salopian does this type of beer rather well and this is no exception.
