Cask. Pale straw, thin head. Malty, yeasty aroma, grapefruit, earth, and something undecipherable in my notepad, that I can only read as "phwls"...? Might be phenols, but who knows. Dry, light bodied, medium bitterness. Malty, hoppy taste, yeast, citrus, mango, earth. (2011-08-04)

I do not know what’s the fetish with dogs for these brewers in UK but anyway. The beer was quite descenmt and refreshing. Goldy and with character.
