There is an awful lot going on with this, from the citrus/orange/lemon/other aroma, through the lovely color, then a melody of flavours to a dryish finish. Not actually sure I’m enjoying it as it is a lot of work, perhaps the fuggles? Who knows I clearly don’t.

Keg in the Horseshoe NW3. Orangey amber colour. Served cold. Some fruity hop, sweetish malt. Actually a bit bland and disappointing, especially as I’ve really enjoyed hoppy Hawkshead beers before - don’t know whether it was the cold keg taking the edge off?

Bottle. Beermoth, Manchester. Clear pale amber. A few soap sud type bubbles. Sweet, caramel malt. Some orange. Some syrupy pineapple. Taste is heavy sweet. Palate is dull, thick, and lifeless. Finishes with some oily bitterness. Maybe this is a duff bottle. Not good.
