Beer4000 (4913) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2012
Cask @ The flying horse, Gatwick . Almost clear golden body with a rather small but dense white head. Nice citric fruit aroma, nothing really special but it makes me happy at an airport. Flavor is nice, smooth light malty with a decent fruity bitterness. Medium body and an aftertaste that has some bitterness. A really nice session ale with a nice smooth flavor that would not offend anyone at all.

On tap @ the Haymarket. Pours amber with a nice head. The nose is of sweet malt. The taste is of more sweet malt and some honey. The palate is medium bodied, with a creamy texture and quite a fresh finish. Overall,ordinary but very balanced.
