UPDATED: DEC 7, 2013 Re-rate: 330ml bottle from Les Crepes de Sophie, Shrewsbury.. still agree with the review below but have given this a slightly higher score due to bucketloads more grapefruit this time around.
Bottle from Beermoth, Manchester. Pours deep gold, with a high carbonation and overly confident bitterness. Crisp, bold, zesty flavours on the finish.
