3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Handpull at The Wheatsheaf (Southwark). Hazy gold with a smallish off-white head. Simple aroma is floral/herbal with lemon zest and coriander, just a hint of candy in there somewhere. Taste follows, more citrus (grapefruit pith) and still not at all sweet - very nicely balanced, really. Average body, a bit astringent, spicy, low-level carbonation, and a medium-short dry spicy finish. Quite quenching - sneaky bit of acidic hop bitterness hovering around the perimeter too.
