SaintMatty (5768) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 15, 2009
Cask (Railway Arms, Alton) - Amber/gold in colour. Malty and slightly fruity aroma. The taste is grainy at first with malt dominating but then becomes more hoppy with citrus notes being evident in the finish.

Blackfriers. Aroma was fruity, hints of citrus and light toffee notes as it warms. Taste is good biscuity/hionts of toffee malt base with a good citrus grassyness cutting through making it very very sessionable.
