chriso (7365) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2004
It’s yellow and its mellow. As others have remarked, this beer is packed with citric hop character. One dimensional it may be, but it’s still a very nice drop. Clean, fresh and thirst quenching. Cask (handpump), Lord Moon of the Mall (JDW), Whitehall, London SW1.
