HogTownHarry (6063) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2012
August 30, 2012 - draught at Euston Tap. Slightly hazy gold, smallish but decent frothy white head. Smells like .. Simcoe - catty, tastes even more so, nice balance against vaguely fruity citrus zest malt - solid body, decent carbonation, a little acidic and dry in the medium-long catty pungent bitter finish. Nice.
