Cask at the Craft #100 at CBC Clapham. Clear amber, white light foam head. Nose is very grainy, barley grain, grain husk, cereal, honey, bit of malt vinegar and fustiness. Taste is grainy, cereal husk, honey, as above but with hop bitter. Bit of sulphur. Not that great condition as probably too warm. Will come back to re-rate.

Bottle. Light golden, hazy, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Light to moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, faint caramel and light tropical fruitiness and some citrus - grassy hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, faint caramel light tropical fruitiness and citrus hoppyness. Finish is short to average, malty and dryish, light tropical fruitiness, some citrus - grassy hoppyness. OK well hopped and dryish golden ale, although body is bit thin.
