6 Pleasant light fruity hop aroma, light grains too.
3 Mid yellow, large spongy head.
7 Lovely light grains, and a good hoppy fruitiness too. Some apple and peary esters in the retronasals.
4 Light grains continue to the finish, as do the hops, this time a bit more bitter as well as fruity.
13 Nothing amazing, but a very good golden ale.

bobinlondon (1288) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2008
Handpulled cask at JDW Hatch End, Harrow. Blond with a creamy white head without sparkler. Lovely fresh condition. Malty without being too sweet. Subtle fruity bitterness. Refreshing but lacking in characture. OK.
