330 ml bottle from Wanstead Tap. Pours dark golden, slightly cloudy, almost clear. Head is very fine, white, big and lasting. Hoppy citrusy aroma. Taste starts sweet, orange and quickly changes to bitter, zesty grapefruit and blood orange. Long lasting bitterness, average carbonation, very refreshing. Great beer, highly recommended.

Roosters Ragged Point
330ml can at home in Richmond as ’Roosters Ragged Point’, 5%, BB Nov 2016. Black with a huge dense foamy brown head that sounds like Rice Crispies. Aroma is earthy, lightly floral, dark chocolate, light metallics. Body is frothy with soft carbonation, but smooths out over time. Taste is breathy floral hops, chocolate and black coffee, earthy, some oily pine, touches of lime with an astringent floral finish. Sitting on the border between BIPA and stout, as expected with the hops involved. I’d say it just creeps in to the stout category with its ashy, coffee bean richness. Very nice. At Ł2.30, you really can’t go far wrong.

Cask @ Ye Olde Fighting Cocks, St Albans
Kolor bursztynowy. Piana niska, niewielkich rozmiarów, barwienia ścianek szkła umiarkowane. W zapachu mocny diacetyl, masło, popcorn, słodycz, słody, karmel i niewiele cytrusów. W smaku słodkie, słodowe także z maślaną nutą. Prócz tego płatki zbożowe, muśnięcie cytrusa. Wodniste, słabe, a nawet bardzo słabe. To piwo nie ma nic wspólnego z California Common.

Can from Fyne Wines, Argyll. Straw-gold in colour, almost no fizz, thin bright-white head; Bright aromas of lemon-meringue and passionfruit with malty notes of oat biscuits; Low flavour intensity on palate, light-medium body, low acidity though with buoyant bubbliness; Rich tea biscuits lead palate with undertones of yellow grapefruit and white florals, mellow bitterness arrives on the finish. Disappointing that the bright aromas fail to develop on the palate.
