Towey1989 (958) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2015
Cask at The Hop Inn, Newcastle-Under-Lyme. A clear golden colour with a thick, creamy white head. Aroma of grapefruit, orange peel, mango, some peach and slight grassy hops. Taste of grapefruit, orange, some mango, slight straw and subtle grassy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, citrus hop bitterness in the finish. Good use of citra hops makes this low ABV beer shine. Tad sweet at first but good.
