Fin (8429) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2010
Cask, handpump at The Flowerpot ,Derby 30-01-10 in company of Loz, Simon (Haddonsman) my dad and Pauline Pours clear as a bell golden with a slim white head. Touch of fruitiness on the nose, lightly bitter on the nose but then there is a nice tingle from the hops and a light burn on the tongue, nice furry bitterness. Really lovely stuff, good citrus flavour’s coming through, lemon peel, clingy, stringy bitterness continuing, great beer but alongside Marble Dobber its in some very special company.

Packed with fresh hops: grapefruit, lemon, lemon sherbet, grass, pine & pepper. Crisp, refreshing, bit like a good pils in terms of mouthfeel, a touch of sting with a medium body & finish.
