Scopey (6180) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2014
Bottle at home. It pours golden-amber with a small white head. The nose is grainy, dough, toasty, light spice and a touch of sweetness. The taste is crisp, bitter, lemony, soapy, toasty, peppery, metallic notes, wood and grain with a lingering dry finish. Light-medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. A bit soapy. So-so. I prefer the cask version.
