jjsint (2834) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2017
Handpull cask at the Three Horseshoes, Stapleford. Very light gold. Straw really. A bit of white head floats on top. Aroma is surprisingly light with suggestions of soft citrus. Tastes much better though... crisp and bitter with tangerine and tropical fruit lingering for the long finish. More citrus and some mango in the aftertaste. Not a world beater but good sessionable cask ale. You know what youre getting.

Cask at Den Engel, Leek. A clear pale golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of orange, peach, slight fruit esters, some pale malts and subtle grassy, floral hops. Taste of orange, peach, subtle pineapple, some fruit, slight bready malts and subtle grassy, floral hops. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A sweetish fruity finish with a bready malt aftertaste. A sweetish, fruity beer showcasing the Amarillo hops used. Maybe a little more bitterness but otherwise very sessionable. Good.
