Cask at Cambridge Blue in Cambridge.

Pours a pale orange; this is a light bitter with a light, dry sour-grass flavor and a lovely long bitter finish, making for a very nice session bitter.

Bottle. Golden with a small head. Aromas are dry and fruity with tea and earthy hops. Flavours are dry and fruity with some underlying caramel malts. Lots of dry tea with citrus bitterness towards the finish. A traditional bitter that demands another glug.
