mabel (8640) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2007
[672-20070924] Cask @ Royal Oak (Bath, SM). Smells like lemon-scent Pledge cleaning solution and some hoppy Pink Lady apples. Slightly hazy, orange brown body with a quick bubbly white head. Flavour is very hoppy with apples and lemons. Medium body is fairly sour and bitter. Very interesting concoction, a nice but strange sourness.
