Cask conditioned handpump Lower Red Lion St Albans 03/08/12. An amber coloured beer with an off-white pool of head. US hops prevalent throughout. Fruity berry flavours and sweet malts. A touch of acidity in the nose spoils it somewhat.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask conditioned at Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Orange amber with white head. Big fruity beer, berries with fruit pulp notes slightly sweetish but not overly so, then a goodly amount of aromatic hops, flowery with touches of citrus. A very pleasant beer which hides its strength well. Good stuff.
