Cask; Regular - previously a Summer seasonal.
Note: The bottled Windermere Pale, at 6.0%, is a very different beer.
Low gravity, very pale, very hoppy.
Maris Otter Pale Ale malt with a bit of wheat. Loads of fruity hop flavours from a medley of traditional and modern hops. The signature aroma hop is Citra.

Cask conditioned handpump Southwark Tavern London 17/07/12. A copper to gold coloured beer with no head. Citrus hoppiness and sweetness in the aroma. A decent body but there’s an odd cloyingness to it. The hops are good but it feels like the malts overcompensate for the lack of ABV.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - JUL 8, 2012
Cask at Cloisters. Pale golden amber, thick white creamy head. Light but decent resinous hop nose, slightly grassy, big grapefruit, gooseberry maybe. Nice juicy bready front, light citrus, grapefruit, nicely drying bitter linger. Soft carbonation, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Lovely, punches well above its weight.

Ungstrup (29802) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2012
Cask at ACBF 2012. A light golden beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of yeast, hops, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of dusty hops, hay, and malt, leading to a dry and bitter finish. Boring hops.

From the tap. Light gold. Tight long lasting head. Fresh grassy aroma. Bitterness up front and throughout the pint, but never harsh. Good summer pint.
