Cask conditioned at The Craft Beer Co. Clerkenwell, London. Gold with white head. Big hoppy beer, quite a strong perfumed note and particularly drying for the alcohol. Grapefruit comes through with a touch of passion fruit. A bit of an attack on the palate. Good.

Cask air pressure at Euston Tap. Deepish golden colour with thin white head. It has a lot of tropical fruit in this beer. Wow. Really quite a hit. Just pure guava and mango. Wow. Pleasant if too cold and the condition of the beers here does leave some room for improvement. Good solid tropical fruit beer though. Arresting. Quite bitter towards the end with a touch of tea coming through. Ok. Some toffee sweetness.

Tap (Somewhere in London, RBESG2011 Saturday)
Sounds odd, but the aroma strongly reminded me of ravioli - it’s a definitely a peppery meat. Retronasals more traditional for a modern quality pale ale - peach and grapefruit. Soft palate, carbonation low. Gold, and with a light head. good lacing. Solid pungent hops, but good balance. Very easy and full-bodied bitter. Fun, and not too heavy.
