Keg at Slowbeer, Melbourne, Victoria. Cloudy pale amber, small head. Bready grapefruit aroma. Mid sweet with full body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Caramelly malt, bread and grapefruit, then a smashingly bitter finish. Much more bitterness than aroma.

Craft Clerkenwell. Light haze on this amber beer and a little white head. Nice fine carbonation in a slightly soft palate. Sweetish pale malt underpins. Lovely tropical fruity hops. Marmalade with mango, dried apricot, fresh orange and a trace of lemon. Finishes crisp and minerally, with a marmalade bitter aftertaste. Every mouthful a winner!
