Fin (7408) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2014
Bottle that I purchased from íJacksí , Westholme Stores, Goring on Thames, Oxon, consumed at home Wednesday 10th September 2014 Pours gold with clean white bubbly head. Zippy in mouth, the aroma is ultra clean, like a sort of chemical version of a spring crisp freshness, but not bad by an stretch. Twangy with a furry citrussy zappiness, a little cheesy hoppiness at edges (perhaps indicating age which was BB 08.14) really good. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov13 3.4

Cask conditioned at The Squirrel, Coventry. Pale gold with white head. Light, malty beer with a slight cigarette ash flavour, reasonably bitter and dry, there is a fresh grainy note. Not sure about the hopfest claim though, it didnít seem overly hopped to me, but itís ok.
