Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear golden colour with a fluffy white head. Aroma of lemon, grapefruit, some apple and grassy hops. Taste is similar of citrusy lemon and apple, dry grapefruit, grassy hops and some berry sweetness. Light bodied and an oily texture. A dry, citrus hop bitterness in the finish.
