hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2010
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Gold with a white head. Attractive sweet aroma with a hint of pineapple, a welcome change from the expected lemony citricity. Pleasant sweet taste with a sour edge. Some bitterness. Thought this was pretty good.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a crystal clear amber with a thin white head. The aroma is weak floral hop leading to a medium bitter flavour with lots of hoppy citrus notes on the smooth refreshing palate. Perfect for a session.
