CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - SEP 5, 2005
Beer No 20 on the Wilsons’ Road Trip 2005. Cask at The Bell, Bath. Golden with a predominantly grapefruit hop aroma. Good mouthfeel with a gobsmacking hop finish. Very good stuff - I’d agree its close to an APA or even an american IPA in style.

Smells good, looks crap, tastes ok, a bit flat, pass. (This is from my tasting notes, which I made to make a point that it’s not always detailed descriptive language when I taste!)
