Cask pint in Victoria Station Wetherspoons on 9th Feb 2016. Light amber body, weak white head. Decent blend of flavours with the citrus notes from the hops just about dominating the slightly sweet, light malts in both the aroma and taste.

Aroma nothing special. However nice golden brown appearance with thin head. Taste good with citrus flavours and slight caramel. Good bite on the palate. All in all quite acceptable.

Hazy light amber color. The aroma is light. Some simple flavor of caramel, lightly papery and dusty. Correct bitterness. Missing any freshness or depth.
