(Cask) Orange/amber with a 1/2 finger head. Aroma is pineapple and grapefruit, sweet and fruity. Taste is sweet at first quickly developing into bitter citrus hops which give a nice long pine finish. Carbonation is minimal as you would expect from the style, and this works to its advantage allowing the hop flavours to shine through. Overall a very nice bitter.
