Cask: Pretty much a permanently available beer now. Very pale with delicious Amarillo hops, therefore earthily aromatic and highly drinkable. Yakima Valley is the area of Washington State in which the hops are grown. pron: YAK’-i-maw

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 18, 2012
Cask. Pours golden with a slight haze and a lacing white head. Lovely sweet fruit in the nose with a lemon twist - but also a discreet whiff of diacetyl. Medium body, low carbonation, sweet fruitiness and some pleasant citrusy hops that also leave a fairly bitter finish. Delicious. 180412
