Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2004
Cask conditioned @ JDW, Winchester. Pale golden with lasting head. Citric fruits and peppery hops. Some malt sweetness which quickly fades to leave a delicious raw hop bitterness.

Cask conditioined
Copper brown, small brownish head. Sweet, hoppy nose with molasses. Nicely balanced English hops in the mouthfeel, a bit spicey. Body is a bit thin which on the other hand makes this to a nice session beer.

Malty taste with notes of dried fruit (apricots), caramel and dusty hops in the finish. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel, moderate bitterness. Decent enough, but leaning in the boring direction.
