Cask at Holborn Whippet. Dark Star 3.8% hop head light golden ale
It pours a clear shiny gold from the cask with a thick head of foam. Happy citrus and honey graham cracker aroma. Smooth full mouthfeel. The taste is ascerbic, bitter and earthy with a definite English bitter type bent I wasnít expecting. Alright but not for me.

500ml bottle from Tescos. Clear light golden beer with a nice lacey white head. Sweet citrus, grapefruit aroma. Carbonation is spot on making it enliven on the tongue. Well balanced flavours of pale malt backing the citrus, sprucey hop overtones. Slightly astringent dry sprucey, citrus rind finish. Refreshing and delicious.
