Cask conditioned @ Black Swan, Martyrs Green. Green hop character, slightly rough bitterness. Some yeasty farts. Not in the best condition but this was an unwelcoming foody ’pub’ where most of the clientele seemed to be drinking wine. 2.4
Cask conditioned @ Guide Dog, Soton. Much better condition. Bitter leafy hops and dry malts. Full lasting bitterness. 3.3
