Cask at the Haltwhistle Comrades Club. Light gold with a fairly lively white head. Lemon, candyfloss and floral scent. Taste is gently bittersweet, although not engaging, it is certainly drinkable. Slightly dry finish. Ok really.

Cask conditioned gravity dispense Banbury Beer Festival 10/05/13. A bright yellowy gold coloured beer with a whitish bubbly head. A zesty citrussy nose. Citrussy hops in the mouth with hints of caramel sweetness. The mouth doesn’t match the nose at all.
