SilkTork (5543) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2013 Feb, 2007 JDW, Camden Lock. American hops in a British cask pale ale - a great combination. It usually works, and it does here. There’s a good dusty Englishness in the finish. Quite yummy. [3.4]
March, 2013 JDW, Rochester. pale yellowish amber. Pleasant, easy drinking with soft tropical fruit. OK. [3.0]

Cask gravity dispense at Red Lion, Isleworth. Bit of a haze, but golden with very sparse head. US style hops on aroma, citrus and grapefruit. Fine in mouth if a bit watery. Served way too cold. Good hops on end. Lots of grapefruit but not too astringent

Cask (handpulled) at the Victoria, Beeston. First beer of the day on the Deep Black stag crawl. off-orange with a creamy head, delicate fruits throughout, lots of hops but not offensive. Could have drunk this all day if we didn’t have another 14 places to go...
