chriso (7365) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2004
Gold colour. Grassy aroma, but no serious hop presence. Nothing wrong with this but it lacks a certain oomph and the overall impression is rather nondescript. Light bodies and a bit thin. As Silk Tork says, somewhat pilsner-ish. Cask (gravity), Battersea Beer Festival.
