3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask - The Southampton Arms, London. Fine & bubbly lasting beige head atop a cloudy, ruddy amber body. Fresh & vibrant grapefruit, peach, strawberry & pine aromas. Pine, gently resinous & grapefruit flavour profile. Cracking depth for the ABV in my book. Nice contrast between an initial juiciness and a finishing dryness. Soft, rounded & firm mouthfeel, gently spritzy crisp carbonation, medium body, big lingering zesty grapefruit bitter finish with a hint of mid berry in the aftertaste. Plenty to offer without going overboard & remaining effortlessly drinkable.
