Cask conditioned air pressure Euston Tap London 12/03/13. A golden beer with a white head and lace. A pleasant but sharp hoppy nose. Bitter hops in the mouth but an uncomfortable biscuity edge which doesn’t work. The aftertaste is wrong.

Recommended by the barmaid at Euston Tap. Half-pint poured from keg. Cloudy apricot coloured body. Creamy white head. Restrained fresh citrus fruits to the nose. Fresh apricot and grapefruit in flavour. Good fruit bitter support to the ending. Well bodied. Nice even though it was served too cold at the pub (London, 27.11.2012).

Cask, handpump at The Shoulder of Mutton, Wantage, Oxfordshire, Wednesday 12th September 2012 Pours golden with a small clean white head. Fruity, tasty beer with an impressive hoppy bite.
