3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Style note: this is not a bitter, its an ipa or hoppy gold/blonde. Misclassified here. Moving on... cask at marble beerhouse in chorlton. Light gold with very thin white head. Aroma orange, peach, caramel. Taste is full of fruity citrussy hops... orange, sour peach, guava. Also grassy and there’s some malt in there (but not a lot cuz its not a bitter!). I’d say Marble’s Spring beats this in the same style, but Lagonda is still excellent.

Bottle. Dark golden beer with a light but reasonable head. The aroma is very bitter and hopped, and the flavour is also very bitter and florally hopped. Overall a reasonable well hopped beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask. Bright golden color with a small white head. Nose is pine, flowers, a nice walk through the country side. Some bright lemon. The taste is more cut grass, aromatic sweetness. Great standard citrus IPA notes. Bitter finish. One indeed for hop fans. Light/medium body. Overall, pleasing IPA!

500ml bottle. Hazy yellow to orange with small frothy lasting white head. Fruity and bitter hop aroma, citrus and orange, some grass. Taste is a bit watery in the beginning, dry, bitter, some citrus, not completely harmonically integrated. Grassy finish. Not bad, but not cutting edge.
