On cask at Stalybridge Buffet Bar October 19, 2013 - A hazy yellow body, bit of a head, but not much. Nose is a grassy mix of odd fruits, picking out pineapple and perhaps kiwi. Taste has a metallic kick to it, not what I’d expected, but still a bit disappointing.

Fin (7343) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2007
Cask at the Dragon, Worcester 03-03-07. Very pale in colour, almost straw coloured. Wonderfully fresh citric nose which led onto a really fresh, juicy, crispy beer. Grapefruit was in abundance here in this superb beer, probably my beer of the day!
