Bottle at ChrisO’s pre-GBBF Shindig. Hazy orange brown white head. Nose grainy malt, bread, something a bit sour too. Taste is sour, sweet, sharp, grainy, bready. Raisins, bit of citrous, but it’s sharp on the tongue and bit dissonant. Not sure how fresh this is! Scopey (14736) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2012
