Fin (7039) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2014
Cask, handpump at The Shoulder of Mutton, Wantage, Oxon, Tuesday 18th February 2014 Pours gold with a slim white head and a little haze, this had only just been put on so very fresh. The elderflower was there but very subtle perhaps too subtle to lend anything meaningful to the beer. Taste was fine but of the beers consumed tonight this was clearly the weakest. Malt and citrus (albeit very slight in terms of the latter) were showing, its got an ok fruitiness and just a little dry at end. Fine. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov12 3.1

Cask at Birmingham Beer Festival 2012. Clear yellow. Smells of elderflower and grapefruit or "like a Body Shop employee’s shirt". Buttery, smooth finish. Crisp. Not a bad start.
