Cask at The Caley. A dark golden ale with a fair beige head. Aroma is dominated by resinous, fruity hops. Specifically passionfruit, pineapple and mango. Quite sweet with some caramel also. Flavours of passionfruit and pineapple. A little bitterness too with an oily mouthfeel. Fruity hop linger. Very nice but a bit sweet for me.
