Cask at the York Tap. OK, not really anything special. Might be better as a keg beer, to let the hops shine through more

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask Small white rim over darker metallic-golden beer. Ureum-rich, sulphury hops, inviting all the same. Bit soapy, other grains and an apparent considerable amount of restsugars, nearly cornflake-like. The yeast giving in? Light to medium bodied, long aftertaste. A tad too sweet, maltsyrup-y for an IPA, IMO.
