Scopey (14505) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2014
Bottle at home. It pours clear pale gold with a thick, fluffy white head. The nose is clean, toasted grain, dough and hay. The taste is crisp, straw, grain, light toast, some bitterness, spice/herbal notes and citrus peel. Finishes up dry. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Straightforward stuff, but not bad.

Pale yellow body, looks like a golden ale. Hoppier than a similar beer I tried next to it. Refreshing, nice.
