jackl (7069) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Cask at The Windsor Castle Kensington. Bright gold with a tiny white head. The nose is biscuit, soft summery citrus fruits. Lemon drizzle cake. A bit ’o pee. The taste is sugar cookie, juicy lemon meat. Dry citrus finish. Simple stuff, but eminently drinkable. Light body, soft. A nice golden. I have to admit that this brewery has continually exceeded my modest expectations.

Cask at the Magpie & Crown, Brentford on 31st January 2015. Slightly hazy amber with shallow off-white foam and partial lacing. Hoppy, yeasty aromas. Rich biscuit malts and mildly citric hops in-mouth. Finish is a continuation of maltiness, but with a bitter note developing in rear of mouth, whilst fruitiness resounds elsewhere. Light-bodied with a zingy mouthfeel.
