Cask at the Craft. Almost clear gold beer. Little white head. Light semi dry palate, a little fine carbonation. Mild pale malt with a tiny bit of cream supports good tangy orange hops - blood orange and a litytle tangerine. Finishes semi dry with mild bitter linger. Not had better than this from Blue Monkey. Great beer on a muggy evening.

Gbbf 2012. Clear pure gold colour lasting white head. Diacetyl on aroma. Some then sweaty hops on the flavour. Decent condition and hops are good but diacetyl takes away from it.

Leighton (10543) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2012
Cask at Howl at the Moon, London. Pours clear gold with a creamy, white cap. Nose holds ripe citrus, especially orange, and also some toasted straw and light lemon. Light sweet flavor, faintly tangy with lemon and orange, some jammy marmalade, mild wet straw bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Light sweet to finish, slightly sticky with more marmalade citrus character and some light, sun-kissed grass. It’s OK.
