Cask conditioned handpump Vin IV Leicester. A straw coloured, slightly hazy beer with a big loose white head. The aroma has sharp grapefruit citrus notes. The taste is the same. Bitter and a little harsh. Needs backbone.

Cask handpull, Vin Quatre, Leicester. Thinly slicked pale gold. Soft and gelatinous after the Paradise, with some lovely wine gummy lemon and lime hops and hobnobby balance. Slight sulphur, geranium, sweat and rabbit tray aroma. Lingers with delicate pale nuttiness and crackerbread. Tangy quencher brimming discreetly with hop character. Who needs US hops?

Cask at Peterborough Beer Fest. Hazy pale yellow. Light hay aroma. Medium sweet and light bodied. Somewhat papery and mushy at first feels crisper and tighter towards the salty, grassy finish. An easy going beer.
