Cask at the Earl of Essex - London. Pours hazy gold with a fine, lingering white cream head. Sweet orange citrus in the bose, some simple white bread. Medium sweet flavor with white bread, white sugar, some melon, orange and grapefruit, hints of dirty pine needles. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. A bit more earthy bitterness in the finish, with more vasic pale malts, white bread, some tangerine. A very elementary IPA, but not altogether bad.
