Cask @ GBBF 2014. Gold pour, small white head. Fairly bucolic nose. A bit or pollen and fresh cut grass. Some tangerine and golden syrup. Flavor has a nice hoppy accent up front. More grass. Summer fruits. Unfortunate cheesy twang on the finish brings down an otherwise pleasant experience. Light and fairly zippy.
