4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
My Bottom Line:
Citrusy and resinous hops are elegantly married to slender, delicately honeyed malts for a perfectly conceived Pale Ale.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the clear golden.
-The mouthfeel is very smooth and elegant. A very well tendered cask, as fresh as can be too.
-Hop bitterness is coniferous and levelled to the rest of the brew’s medium intensity.
-Drinkability is very high.
On cask at Craft Beer Co Clerkenwell.
