SarkyNorthener (3096) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, - JAN 4, 2013
Cask@Lychegatetavern, Wolverhampton. Amber beer with large creamy head and excellent lacing all the way down the glass. Looks excellent. Hop aroma. Taste is very hoppy with citrus fruits and a dry bitter finish. Palate is a little too average and is its biggest let down. A very hoppy beer.

Cask conditioned at Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Amber with white head. There is a fuller body to this with a biscuity, cake like character, some sweetness. A fruity hop then lays on top, a strawberry like note perhaps. A decent beer.

(Cask at St. Urho’s Pub, 20130301) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had fruity hops and toffee. Palate was light bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were fruity hops, toffee, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was musty, hoppy and mildly bitter. The aroma was nice but the taste was too musty.

Lovely hoppy aroma, citrussy with some almost pure lemon notes. Yellow, loose head. Refreshing palate. Hoppy, so refreshing, and fairly grainy. Alas a hint of chalkiness. Such nice hops. Good bitter.
