Playhouse Spoons, Colchester. Clear gold beer, little white head. Palate is light and semi dry. Decent hops - fresh marmalade and bitter peel. A little lemon and a touch of tropical fruits and a pinch of spice. Finishes semi dry with medium bitter linger. Clean and fresh and well hopped. Good stuff!

kwik-lime (1243) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2012
Pleasantly hopped, although a bit of an exaggeration to call it a ’hopocalypse’. Some citrus notes as well, good session beer.
