Cask at the Grafton, London on 21st September 2012. Clear copper with off-white part lacing frothy head. Malty, fruity aroma with berries.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dispensed from the cask into an English half pint jug at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green (Jan ’12).
Pours to a clear amber/copper colour with a thin white head.
Subtle malty nose twinned with a light hop aroma, would say citrusy hops - grapefruit/orangey smell.
Malts in the taste, but probably a little more background than the smell, also get the citrus fruit flavours in the hopping, earthy-ish but not too bitter in the aftertaste
A fairly thin beer in body, but not to the detriment of my enjoyment - ample for this style/ABV!
