jjsint (1253) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2015
Cask at the Clarendon Arms, Cambridge. Dark gold, the tiniest bit hazy. Orange and slightly floral aroma. Nice. Taste is even better: full citrusy bittersweet with a fruity sour hint. Shades of resin, cheese, grass and caramel in the finish. I like this, it even cuts through my ’golden fatigue’.
