Cask, CBC, brixton. Clear, deep gold colour with white fairly creamy head. Honey, biscuity sweet malt aroma. Some hops too but not as much as expected. Sweet toasted bread malt taste, honey again and fruit hops followed by some citrus bitterness. Well balanced and pretty tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
