Cask handpull at Farmer’s Boy, St Albans. Pale gold, lasting white head. American hop aroma. Good blond session beer. Slightly yeasty on aroma. In the JHB/Hophead arena/ Just hasn;t quite got the quality of those two. Fresh though.

downender (6236) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2007
Cask-conditioned at the Farmers Boy, St Albans, 8/6/07. Golden coloured with a slight white head. Aroma of flowers and grapefruit. Flavour started hoppy before a sweet malt finish kicked in. This didn’t hold back - a brash beer which was enjoyable.
