fiulijn (15210) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2012
Cask at Wellington, Birmingham, 4.2% ABV
Light amber color, creamy head. Light aroma. The flavor has some light malt, and light bread trace; light caramel too makes it just a bit better than other simplistic Ales; it has a light British fruitiness too; the final is just too bitter, with light metallic note.
Not bad, but a bit rough.

Cask at the White Horse, Exchange Square. Rich gold pour with a foamy, voluminous white head. Pleasant hop nose, bits of pine and grapefruit. Nice flavor, lots of sticky, resinous bitterness, sweetness of honey and sugar. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Sticky hop finish, great balance, light bread. A really solid beer.
