AshtonMcCobb (5036) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 22, 2014
On tap at the Guildford Arms. Appearance - Nose - floral but you have to search. Taste - mostly hop resin but with a creamy bitter lemon. Palate - light bodied with a tangy texture and unfortunately the finish is just too bitter to balance with this light body. Overall - some tasty features but not quite right.
