Pale in colour, hazy, golden. Aromas are slightly spicy, very citrussy (grapefruit). Really bitter, hoppy taste - I drank this slightly chilled, which seemed to suit the style well. Good.

johndoughty (4975) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2015
Bottle. Bronze with a small head. Lovely grapefruit like flavour with other citrus flavour floating around. Some hoppiness is also there with a hint of bitterness. Interesting with a subtle complexity. Another impressive beer from this brewery.
