Cask at Kingston BF, 28th June 2008, with renffisch. Bright yellow with a summery aroma of honey, lemons and floral hops. When you take a sip though, things go downhill. There’s some bitterness but it soon begins to taste like weak fairy liquid. Unbalanced, this is a bit of a dog’s breakfast of a beer.

Cask@GBBF2007. Golden colour, big white head. Aroma is hoppy and slightly yeasty. Also has some slight spicy hints. Flavour is spiced, wooden and quite grassy and dry hoppy. Good balance, refreshing, but then again quite empty.
