Cask at the market porter. Aroma is citrusy harviestoun hop, grassy bitterness, sweet pale malt. Taste is similar, on the sweetside, a typically drinkable harviestoun beer.

The vaults, Leicester. Honey amber with big bathfoamy suds. Mandarin hop and biscuity pale malt snout. Lingers with shampoo and cheesecake. Milky, still and a bit soporific. Faded to nothing beside the Oakham that followed. OK, but certainly not a favourite from this brewer. Can do better.
