Cask in the Grain Barge, Bristol. Blond with an off white head. No aroma. The taste is very wishy washy with a little citrus. Pretty poor.

Towey1989 (1749) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2016
Cask at The Holy Inadequate, Leek. A clear deep golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of lemon, some grass, a hint of grapefruit and herbal, floral hops. Taste of lemon and grassy hops up front and then pale malts, straw and herbal, floral hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, soft, herbal, floral hop bitterness in the finish. An easy drinking golden ale with soft malty flavours and fresh hops. I like it.
