3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Red Squirrel. Pours clear gold, thick white head. Aromas of grapefruit and pale malt - lots of pale malt for a ’hoppy’ beer. Taste has more malt, veyr light bitterness. Light to medium body, creamy texture, dry finish. Not bad, but not that hoppy.
