Cask conditioned handpump Harp London 12/08/12. A golden beer with an off-white head. A fusty aroma with light but tired hops. Hops are better in the mouth with some grassy bitterness. Quite ordinary. Not sure what happened to the citra or amarillo.

Cask (gravity dispense) at Ealing Beer Festival, July 2009. A decent, grassy golden ale. Plenty of herbaceous hop character. Clean and fresh with a fairly firm mouthfeel. More hop presence in the aroma than on the palate. Straightforward but pleasant.

Cask at Ealing beer fest 2009. Golden pour with small head. Slight hoppy aroma. Citrus, hoppy taste. An OK beer but Twickenham ales don’t really do it for me.
