UPDATED: DEC 10, 2010 Cask handpull at Reading BF 2010. Orange copper colour, lasting thin white head. Lovely citrus hoppy aroma. Floral fresh hop flower, quite light in mouth, but some dryness. Good floral hop. Tasty if light. Re rate at County Hotel JDW Ashford. Hoppier than I remember. So gets one more point.
