Cask at the King William IV, Leyton on 6 April 2012. Slightly murky pale amber appearance. A bit grainy on the nose. Very fruity on the palate with a flowery, herbal character developing. Light bitterness. Decent and interesting if not entirely my bag.

6th April 2012
At the Brewpub. James said this was brewed with Bog Myrtle (bittering), Kaffir Lime Leaves and Coriander. There was at least one more ingredient I didn’t catch in this Gruit. Hazy gold beer, tidy white head. Light dry palate. Nicely done Gruit - tastes of mild sweet herbs and floral things - I would have said a little lavender in there. I could taste a little citrus in there as well which surprised me (but in hindsight must be the coriander). It’s great that brewers still keep this ancient style alive. Nice Gruit!
