Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of madmitch76. Pours a cloudy, opaque deep golden with a creamy and lacing off-white head. Fresh citrusy hops with banana accents. Medium body, fruity, slightly smoky with citrusy hops and a very bitter finish. Rather unusual - closest probably to the Schneider/Brooklyn collabs, but rougher and less well executed. 170611

At the brewpub in Leyton. Hazy amber beer, little white head. Rich dried fruits, orange marmalade and some grapefruit. Nothing unusual flavour wise here but the flavours are intense from beginning to end. Nice beer!
