Cask at the Ye Olde Foundry, Dudley. Poured a clear straw colour with a frothy white head and lots of clingy lace. The aroma is yeast, light malt citrus. The flavour is light bitter with a light malt hop bitter palate. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Not so much going on but I totally get this beer!
