Hand-pulled pint in King William 1V on 16 Feb 2013.
I should have known by its name it would be a pale golden citrus flavoured beer: all the New Zealand hops Iíve ever come across are citrusy and UK brewers seem to only use them in light brews.
I donít usually like citrusy blonde beers, hence I didnít like this one either. Others my fall over trying to get these sort of brews but Iím bored with them.
The beer looked bright and clean enough, Iíve already mentioned itís citrusy flavour (grapefruit and lemon washing up liquid).
Thin bodied and uncomplicated to my mind.
