3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green - 02/03/13.
Lightly hazed golden amber with a bubbly off white head.
Nose is hop forward, orange, citrus notes, mandarin, pineapple, touch of sugars, light caramel.
Taste largely mimics the nose - good hop presence, orange, light pine, tropical fruit notes.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, bitterness in a dry finish.
A decent hopped up bitter - perhaps not one for the purists but this worked for me, one I could enjoy a decent amount of !

Cask in the Euston Tap. Full golden colour with a creamy white head. This is a cracking full flavoured bitter, decent malt backing and strong slightly juicy citrus hop flavours, lots of grapefruit. Long quite bitter finish. An American hop take on a dry Manchester bitter, works well!
