Has a smooth, light fruit / hops entry and ends with a strong hops / bitter finish. I had this in a single bottle and as a session. It’s a zesty, crisp ale, but is not in my top 10 of British Ales. My first tasting of this was at the Keswick beer festival in 2004. It is better from the cask.

Amber, almost no head. Citrus and hops and rust in the scent. In the mouth: hoppy and lemony. Slightly watery. Simple and average. Not very much to this one.

(Cask at Lion Tavern, Liverpool, 25 July) Colour is amber with brown notes, white disappearing head. Nose is malty, nutty (almond) with some dark fruit. Same goes for the taste: malty, nutty, dark fruit, prunes and a balanced bitterness in the dry, dusty finish. Balance is the word. In perfect condition, as always at the Lion Tavern.
