What goes around comes around. And its a bout time this little beauty got the big one. Pale, with a nifty little zip that quivers like a n arrow. Available at a pub near you right now!

A nice critrusy and hoppy pale ale. Probably ruined a bit by being under chilled so maybe I would get another few points if colder. But still enjoyed it.

Cask at The Pennsylvanian (Spoons), Rickmansworth, Herts. A golden coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Vague hoppy, citrus aroma. Tastes slightly hoppy, citrus and very bitter indeed. Not one I'll bother with again.

Biroholik (1646) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - AUG 3, 2017
Cask @ White House, Luton
Złoty w kolorze z niewielką białą pianą. Aromat okropny, odrzucający. Płyn do mycia naczyń, kanaliza. Zero cytrusów. Gdzieś w tle trochę ciasteczkowej słodowości . W smaku znacznie lepiej, ale także nic specjalnego. Trochę cytrusów, pszenicznego ciałka, ciasteczek, herbatników, toffi i karmel. Wodnista tekstura. Długi, ściągający finisz. Pijalność kiepska...

Holmen1 (6662) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 6, 2017
Fra håndpumpe påmThe Mossy Well, Muswell Hill (London), mars-17: klar lys gylden med ok skum. Lys malt, honning, citron og appelsin i aroma og smak. I tillegg en touch av granskudd. Fin munnfølelse, behagelig bitterhet i avslutningen, lettdrikkelig.

Cask @ The Salopian. Pours clear gold white head. Aroma of pale malts, soft citric hop. Taste is smooth, zesty, grassy with some pale malt grains. Ok.
