2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
First had this on a CAMRA bus trip on 24th March 2012 but this report is from a pint and a half (cask) poured in The Cock Hotel, Wellington on 31st March 2012.
Light golden coloured body with a good looking white head.
The nose was weak, some mild citrusy hop hints but otherwise nothing.
The taste leaned towards hops although the malts were never far from the surface either. A pleasant flavour but lacking in umph!
