Towey1989 (1820) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2016
Cask at The Hop Inn, Newcastle-Under-Lyme. A clear straw colour with a thin white head. Aroma of grapefruit, some orange, slight melon, a little straw and subtle floral hops. Taste of sweet orange, some grapefruit, slight melon, a little straw and subtle spicy, floral hops. Light bodied and a slight oily texture. A dry, orangey, floral hop bitterness in the finish. This is a hoppy pale ale done right. A great Amarillo hop aroma and flavours, well balanced. Tasty.
