BeerViking (3915) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Cask at the Magpie, typical golden ale look and nose - gold fruity malt, hint of tropical fruit - then an initial faint swetness on the palate is swiftly overtaken by a sharp, dry and almost acrid grapefruity bitterness, yet with the malt still there as an undercurrent. Nice.
