Semi blonde. Rather too much butterscotch for my palate. Especially in aroma, not so appearant in the taste, though. Slightly fat.

Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm. Golden colour. Grass and butterscoth dominates this light, yet rounded and drinkable ale. It has soft mouthfeel and is strikingly hoppy with lingering bitter finish. A very good thirst quencher.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled, at the Head of Steam, Euston, London.
Pale golden, capped with bubbly white head. Despite looking like a pale hoppy session beer, this is actually a dull, metallic pint. This was a particularly smokey night in the HOS and I think any beer would have struggled.
