imdownthepub (9991) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2011
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Gold to amber with white head. At last, the Spoons Fest is really coming to town, light hoppy dry bitter, quite lemony and grapefruit skin, fresh (surprisingly) and nicely refreshing. My best Northern Ireland beer to date.

Crosse Keys Spoons. Clear gold beer. Residual white head. Light dry palate. Moderate carbonation. Nice sweet and bitter hops! Some aniseed in the background. Tropical fruits in the foreground, mango and others, fruity! Then a bitter pine kick. Finishes semi dry. Tasty and highly drinkable.
