Keg, 23 Club, Liverpool. Amber looks with a small white head. Juicy citrus and grassy hop nose wise. Tropical fruits, sweet malt and some very tidy hop bitterness unfolded in the flavour. Tasty stuff, can’t fault it.

Garrold (4260) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2016
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.

Hazy appearance. Very hoppy aroma and great strength. Nice bite on the palate. Bready citrus taste. All in all very acceptable.

Cask at the Hope Tap (JDW), Reading. Glowing crystal-clear amber with a thin white head. Tropical notes up front, a friendly warming caramel middle then pine in the mildly bitter finish. A little too much Cascade for my personal preference by the finish, but there’s no denying that this is a very tasty and well-balanced brew and well worthy of it’s high score on this site. Had it just after the very good and quite similar Hilden Mill Street, and this was just a little step ahead on all counts.
