Cask conditioned at The Fox & Hounds, Heacham, Norfolk. Pale gold beer with big white head. Incredibly dry bitter beer, outpunching its ABV considerably for flavour. Oily hops, flowery with a sharp tangy lemon note. There is a light base carrying the long bittersweet finish. Lovely.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Cask many times at the Euston Tap. Pours a clear yellow with a huge, pillowy, pure white head. Aroma is straw and faint dough malts with crisp, light citrus and grass hops. Flavor is beautiful. Just sweet enough, just bready enough, with some mild cereal and crackers, then some subtle, whispy and delicate bitterness of lemon rind and straw. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Finishes lightly sweet and dry with some fine citrus fruit notes and lingering hay. Drinkiní beers donít get any better than this.

Pale gold, tiny head. Hoppy and light grainy muesli aroma, refreshing. Strongly hoppy in the mouth, and with plenty of light grain tastes too. Very full-bodied for 3.5%. Sweet and drinkable.

Very pale straw colored pour. The aroma is great. Lots of fresh zesty hops. Bright spice and an almost noble zestiness. A touch of floral hop aroma. Bright and zesty. Lovely and light. Really a very tasty pint.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good snowwhite head over very pale golden beer. Nice aromatic USA hops, fruity as passion fruit and flowery, slightly resiny; bit of lemon. Bitter hoppy, fruity and lightly herbal beer with an underbuild of pale grains. Obviously very light body, but spritzy and challenging. Nice in an absolute way, crazily good relatively speaking for a 3.5% beer; respect!
