minutemat (4886) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2014
Cask @ The Fox, Dalston. Very mild hoppy citrus flavours, perhaps not as fresh as it should be. A slight touch of tropical fruit, some gooseberries in the faint distance, couldnt detect any white wine influence. Overall a little disappointing but open to trying again fresh.
