DandyLion (476) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2013
Cask @ High Cross (JDW) Leicester. Nice clear golden colour. Pine/tropical fruit aroma. Taste is nice hoppy new world hops but quite staid and not overboard. I would like it a bit more overboard though. It's quite nice. It's OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
