Fra håndpumpe på pub i London jan-11: Tydelig kjeks (Maris Otter malt?) og engelske humler. Lett karbonert som gir en myk munnfølelse. Medium bitterhet. God pubøl med bare 3,6%, gjør pubcrawl til en fornøyelse og ikke anstrengelse.

Hand pulled pint taken at the lovely ’Faltering Fullback’ in North London; Oct 2011: UK pint sleeve glass, unmarked. The beer was a pale copper colour, clear and bright. The head a good showing of off-white bubbles which settled and stayed. A lot better looking than the bottled version I reviewed some years back.
Good healthy aroma of hops and malts, no overpowering smell, just enough to let you know it’s a beer in your hand.
Very easy to drink, I had three pints and wanted more, but the wife needed food. A really good blend of flavours, like the nose nothing powerful, just a subdued pleasantness all round.
