Spoons Fest! Slighty hazy gold beer, residual suddy white head. Semi soft and semi dry palate. Creamy even malt base. Nice fresh grapefruit hop tempered by some sweeter orange and peach. Finishes the same. Tasty decent beer - guzzled down thirstily!

fiulijn (14340) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 10, 2009
<i>Cask Conditioned at Doric Arch, London</i>
Hazy amber color. Breadish malt aroma. The aroma is not impressive, but it has a far better flavor (between a 7 and an 8), with good malt, light fruitness, strong bitterness. The final (long and boldly bitter) is lightly metallic. Very good.
