First discovered in Wetherspoons Leeds as a draught. Marvellous, light easy-to-drink ale. Definitely a "session" beer. I live the drinkability of it and the citrus hints. Drink it whenever I find it.

Cask at the Moon Under Water (JDW), Watford on 8 April 2013. Poured a clear, bright amber, with a dense off-white head. Aroma was slightly dulled; some citrus, copper and caramel. Flavours have more assertive hop character, with grapefruit, marmalade and biscuity malt. Finish was bitter resin, dry grain and soda bread.

wheresthepath (2300) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2013
[Cask at the Monks Retreat (JDW), Reading] Amber-red with a beige head and a moderate fizz - really quite fizzy for a cask beer. Ooh, unusual aroma, cant quite place it. On tasting it theres some chilli, a deep toffee malt background, then definite pine, orange and grapefruit. It draws you in - its very more-ish. A big like from me on this one, I do enjoy Adnams efforts as these festivals. Lengthy grapefruit finish.
