jjsint (1339) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2014
UPDATED: APR 24, 2015 Cask at the Prince Albert, Ely. Deep, dark gold, with a ring of loose white head. Scent of orange peel, cherries, pine, a bit of astringency. Mostly sweet fruity taste, but a soapy hint near the finish takes the experience down a notch. Reasonably bitter aftertaste. Fuller palette than you’d expect from this style and ABV. A mixed bag but mostly a very positive experience.

kwik-lime (1472) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2014
Cask at the Pemburey Tavern, Hackney. Pleasant citrus and grassy hops but low carbonation made it pretty lifeless and forgettable.

Cask @ The Pembury Tavern. Light golden color with a small head. The nose is fresh orchard fruits, light malts and sugary dough. The taste is red apple, some apricot jam and delicate caramel. Soft, dry finish. Pleasing if forgettable.
