Cask - The Parrot, Canterbury. A clear, golden orange coloured beer with a small, lasting and lacing white head. The aroma has a pleasant, caramel malt base with fruity, hoppy overtones - slightly lemony, slightly woody. More citrus hops on the tongue build on the caramel malts finishing with a dry and tangy hop note. Medium body, low carbonation, soft mouthfeel.

HarryFlashman (469) - Chatham, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2007
This got some good ratings here, but I aint a big fan. Nice and fruity, but a touch bland and tasteless. Not in the same league as other Hopdaemon numbers such as Incubus and Skrimshander.

Great hoopy pale ale - I love this stuff - I just wish it were a tad more bitter like the original ! A great local standard ale!
