Cask conditioned @ Giddy Bridge (JDW), Soton. Pale. Spicy with citric hops. Slightly grainy mouthfeel which disrupts the flow of the hops towards a mildly bittter finish.

A Mes rate: Cask at the Head of Steam in Euston. Hoppy aroma with slight tobacco. Not bad in the looks dept. On the brown side of golden with just a thin film for a head that leaves clearly layered lace. Tells a story of every sip of your drink. I love that. Creamy flavour with tobacco notes and hints of tangerine and apricot. Good dump of citric hops for the finish. A fine drop of English actually. Like one of those old friends that is a little thick but you get on well. :)

Pint on tap in Chester. Orange appearance with a good head. Tangy flavour, strong citrus influence, All I can think about is oranges when drinking this ale, after taste however was rather sharp. I enjoyed the beer.
