Cask conditioned handpump Old Fountain London 01/08/14. A golden beer with a tight white head and lace. Orangey citrussy hops in the nose. The same in the mouth but they take on a real soapy edge. an interesting odd bitterness too. It’s ok.

500ml Bottle - Golden with a foamy head. Pine, grapefruit and a hint of ginger in the aroma. Earthy taste with grapefruit and earthy notes dominating. It tastes a little thinner than I was hoping for.

Garrold (2152) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2013
Bottle from Beermoth, Manchester. Dropped unlucky with this one. It wasn’t in the best nick, although well in date. Anyway; hazy golden. White head. Lemon grainy aroma. Some grassiness. Dry, bitter palate. Bitter finish. All subdued by an unwelcome, vinegary mustiness. Will have to re-rate.
