Playhouse Spoons. Clear gold beer, little white head. Palate is smooth with good carbonation giving a crispy edge. Semi sweet pale malt with a whisper of honey. Decent tangy citrus - touch of marmalade and a little orange - tangerine. Finishes crispy minerally. In very good condition and pretty tasty.

Nocturne (1833) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2013
Cask. Clear gold with a long-lasting white cap. Faint aroma of hay and citrus. The taste does offer some nice hop character without much associated bitterness. Fairly light of body. OK overall but not really assertive in any way.
