On tap at The Craft Clerkenwell. Clear amber colour lasting white head. Too cold man. Oh why is keg beer in the UK so cold. Some light soap. Can’t taste much as way too cold.

Oakes (13599) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 17, 2014
Golden and actually looks a bit dull. Quite fruity and with a dash of berries. Light fruits, hint of hop spice and a light, bready pale malt base.

Cask conditioned at The Dornoch Castle Hotel, Sutherland, Scotland. Gold with white head. Nicely hopped beer, quite bitter with hints of grass and grapefruit. Leafy and dry, the malts are light and biscuity. I enjoyed this.
