Cask Conditioned at The Travellers Rest, Flash, Derbys. Mid golden with frothy head. Beutifully balanced zesty, tangy IPA. Plenty of hops, fresh, lightly boiled, absolutely refrshing after a 15 mile hike over the moors around Axe Edge so I am being carefull about not overmarking.

Rune (11120) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2015
Cask ale by hand-pump, half at Flower Pot. Thin patchy head. Lacing to the upper part of the glass. Clear golden body. Discreet aroma of oily and grassy hops. Likewise the taste character is made up by mid-sweet hops and a touch of honey sweetness. Mid-dry ending. Pretty average (Derby 20.02.2015).

leaparsons (9851) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2002
This is a very pale IPA, not as impressive as Deuchars or Empire Pale Ale but not a bad festival beer.
