Pint at The Counting House (’spoons) in Glasgow. Slightly hazy orange amber body, with a white head. Grassy aroma, floral and citrus flavour with pleasant nutty depth. Slightly sticky palate. Don’t know if I would fancy a session, but a perfectly acceptable refresher. Went well with fish chips and mushy peas.
