ladnewton (1442) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2014
Cask at Craft Beer Co, Covent Garden on 23rd May 2014. Amber to gold with thin loose off-white foam. Biscuit malt and citric hop aromas. The liquid taste is grass and citric hop with plenty of biscuit malt; the two foci harrmonising. A bitter core develops in finish whilst hop and malt remain in background. Light yet engaging texture and a fair amount of body.
