Pint at the Crispin in Wokingham. Copper/red with a good bubbly cream head. Nice dry hop taste, with a dry finish. Pleasant fruit hop aroma. Tastes a little hop/malty with a hint of citrus. Its alright, with some flavour but struggles to rise above mediocrity.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2008
Cask at Turf Tavern, Oxford, on Ratebeer Oxford Day í08. Gold with a sweet hoppy aroma and malty taste with some fruits there as well. Fair enough, but the medieval gothic architecture towering around us was more impressive.
