dutchbeerpages (2265) - Wilnis, NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2013
A clean taste it is, maybe a little too clean. Hardly any aroma, lightly metallic, ugly beer apart from the head.

Cask at the Griffin Inn, Bath. Pours clear, dark gold with a fine, frothy, off-white head. Bready malts on the nose with hints of honey. Light to medium sweet flavior with doughy bread, notes of toffee and butterscotch, ripe fruits, citrus, mellow leafy bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Good condition. Just a touch more leafy hop kick to finish, with further bready malts and toffee, along with lightly sugary, ripened fruits. Very nice bitter.
