Poured a nice Golded color with great smell of hops. I got this cask ale at tThe Nag’s Head Pub in Manchester. A little different than most of the bitters I tried (I know its an IPA). Closer to the american craft beers that I like.

May 06. Lemony golden body, white head, lacing. Lovely citrus taste, compared to what I have been drinking it was nice to notice the hops once again. Smooth, can see why it is in a lot ot pubs. Slipped down a treat but would stop at half a dozen or so.
