2010-07-29. Crisp yellow body with a small foamy white head. 3+ Flavour has more zippy hops than the others, light lemon and grapefruit citrus, lingering citrus zest. 7+ Modest aroma, light nuanced citrus, mild pale malt. + Smooth average plus palate suits the beer. Very drinkable, possibly their most interesting imho. Cask at Hook Norton Brewery
