maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2012 Cask conditioned Handpump Swan & Rushes Leicester. A bright gold coloured beer with a whitish head and lacing. This is a lovely hoppy beer with fresh notes throughout. A bit of orange and grapefruit with a good malt backbone. Fresher and more pleasant in the mouth than the nose, but both elements are good. Nice. Score 3.6
Subsequent ratings scored 3.4 and 3.7. Average unaltered
