Cask (gravity dispense), Bedford Beer Festival, October 2005. Last beer of the night. More in bitter than golden ale territory. Pale amber colour. The hops are there, but quite understated and more dusty than aromatic. Reasonably dry with some grip on the finish. Pleasant enough but, at the end of the day (literally and figuratively) it didn’t have enough presence to make a big impression.
