Cask at the Holborn Whippet. It pours clear golden with a medium white head. The nose is fresh, fragrant, orange peel, grapefruit, tangerine, doughy background. The taste is crisp, bitter, doughy, citrus peel, grapefruit, light floral and a touch of spice with a dry finish. Light-medium body and fine carbonation. Crisp, bitter and so very well balanced. Subtle nuances galore. Well-executed and effortlessly drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Guildford Arms.
Appearance - golden with a slight haze. Decent head.
Nose - citrus but predominantly meadow flowers. Maybe even a hint of custard.
Taste - more flowers and there’s a lovely tangy hop resin thing going on. I think this is where the custard note came from.
Palate - light to medium bodied. Something on the end has not sorted itself out. Not as fresh as I’d hoped.
Overall - interesting and good but more interesting than good.
