Cask handpull at Cask Pub & Kitchen Pimlico. Some toffee on the aroma. Little bit of hop. Not the best. Too much toffee and thin in the mouth.

Cask at the Euston Tap, 16/12/13. Clear golden with a good sized off white head that retains well. Nose is citrus fruit, light grapefruit, orange sherbet, straw. Taste comprises orange pith, light tropical notes, melon, citric infused straw. Light to medium bodiment, fine carbonation, dry finale with grassy hop bitterness. Decent low ABV GB affair with a noticetable hop lick.

jmgreenuk (3563) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 4, 2013

StueyD (1065) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2013
A pale orange-yellow coloured beer, weak head. A light aroma, firstly of citrusy hops, then a mild biscuity malt aroma comes through. Dry mouthfeel. The taste is reverse of the aroma, a smooth, biscuity malt taste is followed by a tangy citrusy hop flavour that lasts into the finish. Tasted at the 2013 Norwich CAMRA beer festival. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
