On cask at Wentworth Hotel, Attercliffe - Nice looking hazy golden body, thick white head. Nose is unremarkable, but with a lemony citrus hop thing going on with the malty overtones. Taste is light, crisp and fruity, with a short finish. Nothing special but it was nice to find a handpull that was on (after the other four were flipped on our entry).

Bottled. A light golden beer with a huge bubbly white head - due to high carbonation. The flavor is sweet with primary notes of lemongrass, while the falvor is sweet with notes of both straw and lemongrass. The body is thin. Thanks to fonefan and Brugmansia for sharing.
