A hoppy aroma with citrus and toffee but well balanced and not over the top.

Hand pulled at The Crown, Beeston. I liked this. Strong, yup, and probably the main reason I’m now sitting on a train deciding whether to have curry, pizza or chips at the other end. Tasty hoppy citrus bitter with some ginger grassiness. I think I’m making up words here. Nice beer.

Cask at The Vic, Preston. Best beer of the night by some margin, clear golden pour, citrus, herbal notes, alongside caramel and cereal malts. Some resin. Good balance of bitter and sweet on the taste. Creamy texture, full-bodied, and a lingering pleasantly dry bitter finish. Lovely.
