Cask,hand pulled at Rocklands Club,Redditch,Worcestershire.25th march.Golden amber pour sporting a large white creamy head which remained throughout.Strong citrus and pine aromas which were also very evident in the taste.A nice background flavour of vanilla and fruit also present.Lovely hoppy ending with citrus again very evident.Very very easy to drink brew backed up by the fact i was on my 3rd inside 10 minutes which is always my sign of how good a beer is,’how quick it goes down the glass’..
