Cask conditioned at The Coastguard Inn, St Margarets bay, Kent. Gold with white head. Sharp and hoppy, hurrah, nicely dry with a slightly thinnish malt, hopefully the end of a bad run. Fresh and lasting bitterness. Decent.

Cask, handpull at the Malt and Hops?, Edinburgh, with Craig, Jan, Charlotte & Loz, 29.10.10 Pours amber with a big white fluffy head. The aroma isnít up too much. Taste is low-med bitterness, bit too much confectionary going on here for me, too sweet lacking bite and identity. A6 A5 T6 P3 Ov12 3.2
