A blast of New Zealand hops, fruity, but yet a bit tired. I think this would be better in a keg version.

Cask at CBC Clerkenwell. Pours clear golden with a bubbly white cap which is quickly gone. Nose is practically the same as the original sitting next to me. Maybe a slight note of passionfruit. Taste is a little more biscuit driven with more zest. Not bad
