Cask @ Richard John Blackler, Liverpool. Golden with a creamy head. Has a medium malty bitterness that’s most stated in its taste as there’s hits of fruits to enjoy in its aroma and aftertaste. Session ale.

Cask, JDW Wetherspoons, Liverpool St.
Golden appeaeance. White lacing. Lychees and fresh hey on aroma. No off-flavour. Fruity yeast esters. White grapes, pretty clean malt, lemons, moderate grapefruit. Ok bitterness. Well-made. Could be amped up a bit. Easy to session. Typically above average golden ale. Torrified wheat ruins it for me.
