Draught @ Albion. Cloudy bright orange with very small frothy white head, grassy hops aroma, low carbonation, flat sweetish taste with little hops influence, abrupt finish. It’s a wonder how they managed to give the flavor but not the taste of hops!

Tasting at Leighton’s Flat. Growler thanks to our host. Bright clear gold beer, residual white head. Palate is light and semi dry. Modest fine carbonation. Smooth pale malts. Modest hops - some bitterish floral flavours. Little citric peel. Light finish. Mild bitter linger. Feels a little like a well hopped (noble hop) bitter.

Growler thanks to Leighton. It pours clear golden-amber with a bubbly beige head. The nose is toasty, cereal, grain, honey and mild caramel. The taste is light, toasted cereal, soapy citrus, lemon rind, pepper, grapefruit and grass with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Almost like a bitter! English style IPA for sure. OK.
