Cask pint in my local Wetherspoons on 19th April 2016. Good looking beer, clear amber body with an off-white head. Toffee Grapefruit, we’ve all had a Toffee Apple, does anyone know of a Toffee Grapefruit, if so this beer smells and tastes like one. I liked it.

tombyars (1580) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - APR 6, 2016
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) on the 5th April 2016. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear pale copper in colour with a thin off white head. Slightly hoppy aroma with a hint of grapefruit peel. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a light digestive biscuit base with a juicy grapefruit flavour. Citrus note present in the light bitter aftertaste with a dry earthy background. Finish is slightly malty by a nose with a hint of pink grapefruit sweetness coming through at the end. A so-so standard session bitter.
