berkshirejohn (4443) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2013
50cl bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring. A hazy amber pour with a billowing white head; intesely floral aroma with some pine and tropical fruit; light and refreshing in the mouth, with an amazingly complex taste - pinapple, grapefruit and gooseberry, barley and bread dough; and a dry, slightly spicy, bitterness before a sweet, biscuity, finish. Rather good stuff.

Cask@Catford Bridge Tavern, SE London - Gold pour with a medium white head and pleasant lacing. Light floral pineapple and grapefruit aroma and taste, hints of pine with sweet biscuit/cereal malt. Nothing amazing but pretty decent quaffable session/easy drinking ale all the same.
