Bottle. Bronze slightly cloudy appearance. Lively on opening with a big head that took time to dissipate,Quite a lot of sediment was floating around my glass even tough I was careful poring it. London micro’s have produced some impressive bottled beers recently. This isn’t one of them.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask, handpump at The Hop Pole, Aylesbury, Buckinhamshire, Thursday 13th September 2012 I was quite pleased to see this on offer and no new Aylesbury or Vale beers as I guess I would have been inclined to deviate towards them, but back to this beer. It pours dark gold, really crisp and citrussy, refreshing and with a nice dry finish. Very enjoyable. A6 A4 T8 P4 Ov14 3.6
