Can. Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. Deep orange. Light haze. Thin, sticky, white head. Nose has jammy, spicy hop. Notes of ripe orange. Hint of woody herb, maybe. Sweet, soft toffee malts behind that. Taste is initially sweet and toffeeish, turning light, fruity, resinous bitter. Smooth mouthfeel. Easy drinking. Shortish, light bitter finish. Nice one.

ForlornHope (376) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2016
Can at home. Pours amber in colour with a thick white head. Aroma: bready yeast, caramel, nutty with some pine resin. Taste has a little sweetness with an immediate hit of huge bitterness. Sappy malt background and more caramel, nut and hop, earthy and fragrant. Massive dry and bitter finish that makes you want more but with a rich mouthfeel. Excellent.
