Cask at the Henry Addington, canary wharf. Bonus tick, I thought I had had this beer already when I ordered it. Nice clear golden coloured pour with a lasting steadfast creamy head.. Aroma is a little hop resin grass and pine, little subdued English yeast esters. Some berry. Flavour is light grains, biscuity grains, little resin, grass, hedgerow hop. Palate is really nicely conditioned, moderate carbonation, medium full bodied. Really drinkable.
