4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask@Blue Stoops,Chesterfield. Hard to believe this is only 3.5 ABV. Lovely citrus,lemony hop taste which really gets the taste buds into overdrive. Perhaps not quite as good overall as Wild Mule or Yankee,but another very good beer from a very good brewery. If you like your pale/gold ales then this will not disappoint in any way.
