Cask Pint at Wibbas Down (JDW), Wimbledon, London in July 2013 - Pale Yellowy Gold in colour. Very hoppy; grassy hops. Very fruity; grapefruit and lemon citrus, very tangy. Malty; sweet malts. Moderately bitter citrus fruity hoppy throughout. Dry bitter fruity hop finish. Rather like drinking a bitter citrus fruit cocktail. (Note: Don’t remember the bottled version being this good) Very refreshing. Liked this a lot. Nice beer!
