Keg @ Duke of Argyll, Soho, Several times in the latter 2000ís. Donít remember it too much to be honest, rating it years later given itís now retired so thereís no chance of tasting it again. Ordinary tasting with a carbonation is about it and not a huge difference from the current version available.

managed to get a pint of this before the last barrel went at Hyroyds WMC. Itís been years since Iíd had on of these and Iíd forgotten how good it was. straw/hay/grass aroma with a little lemon citrus. flavour is slightly malty with a hint of hop. prickly carb. slight bitter finish. allegedly the 2.8 version tastes exactly the same. iíll be on the look out!
