3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell (CBC) on 30th March 2013. Amber with thin layer of foam. Fruity aroma with spice and honey. Biscuit malt and sharp citric hoppiness in-mouth, with slightly sour lactic note. Grapefruit finish with a fair amount of milkiness which I was not sure that I liked or that the brewer intended. Drinkable, and I finished it without great difficulty but would not list it amongst favourites.

Cask at CBC Clerkenwell, London. Very drinkable stuff. Some pale, bready malts, inviting citrusy hops. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Clean finish, further simple, pale and bready malts, orange and other citrus fruits. A tasty beer. Simple, but good.
