JohnRMurdoch (3281) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - OCT 10, 2011

Scopey (6812) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2011
Cask at the Skylark. It pours golden yellow, with a thin, foamy white head. The nose is pine, light resin, straw, boiled sweets and citrus pith. The taste is straw, hay, pine, earth, spice and fresh floral hop, with a light dry finish. Light to medium body and fine carbonation. Clean, crisp and easy drinking. I wasn’t expecting this to be as good as it is.
