Keg, Draft House Tower Bridge, 13/12/15. Gauzy fizzing orange capped with subsiding white. Aroma of grapefruit and hairy chlorophyll. Lush perfumed passion fruit, dragon fruit, wonderfully clean soapy multicoloured and green stewed flavour. Crisp malt base. Winner all round except that itchy, fizzy and headless keg condition.
