Half pint, cask ale at Sebright Arms in Bethnal Green. Fragile lacing from a thin, white head. Clear golden coloured body. Mild aroma of grassy hops and bread. Orange fruity flavour joined by herbal hops on a backbone of modest caramel sweetness and followed by a fruit hoppy ending. Medium to thing bodied. Easy to drink. Just alright (London 26.09.2014).
