Cask. Slightly hazy mid-gold ale with a thick white top. Smells a bit like playdough. Salty and apples. Taste is apples and peaches and a saltiness too. A little odd.

JorgeLee (1065) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2011 Cask at GBBF 2011. Looks like a pale golden bitter but strong hoppy aromas promise a more serious beer! Weighty and slightly oily on the palate, with serious hops offering a mix of underlying fruity sweetness fading into a long drier citrus hoppy finish. One of the best English IPAs I’ve had, managing strong flavours without needing ridiculous levels of alcohol.

On tap at the GBBF 2011. Citrus aroma. Hoppy. Creamy white head. Clear golden pour. Lovely bitterness. More like an IPA. Yummy

On cask at Trackside, Bury. Far too sweet for me, syrup, fruits. Strong hops. OK.
