Block (2845) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - AUG 8, 2016
Some of these English beers are incredible because of how light they are. Nothing about this beer says ’hophead’. Very light, sweet. Almost no hop flavor outside of the core needed to support a beer.

ThirstyBird (2953) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2015
On cask at the Watford Real Ale Festival, pours a very pale clear yellow with a slightly off-white head. The smell is citrus, light grain. The taste is crisp citrus ending dry. Very light in body with mild carbonation. Solid stuff.
