Cask at Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell on 1st August 2014. Hazy gold with a thinning off-white film and scant lacing. Inviting hoppy, yeasty aroma. Bitter hoppiness in-mouth with a solid, satisfyingly bitter finish that intensifies, seemingly with each sip. Fair amount of body and engaging mouthfeel.

Cask conditioned handpump Locomotive Wellingborough 11/ A golden beer with a white bubbly head. Some decent enough citricity from the hops but there’s a little diacetyl. A little flowery and a touch of biscuit. Served warmer than desired. Acceptable only.
