Gravity Cask @ Soton Beer Festival 07. A hint of tasty toffee goes well with citrussy hops and pine. Bitterness fades quickly. Drinkable but leaves you wanting a little more, shoukl be good for a session.

Cask conditoned - gravity dispense - Nottm BF. A golden coloured beer with a little lace. The aroma is citrus hops with some specific lemon. The taste has some orange notes also. Not as fresh as could be but Ok all the same.
