Cask at the Euston Tap. Pours yellow-gold with a moderate, white head. Hay and straw bitterness with hints of citrus in the aroma. Good, balanced flavor with light orange and lemon citrus and some modest, toasted bread. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation.

Fin (10917) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2010
Cask, gravity, Merton Summer Beer Festival, 16-07-10 I’ve had this many a time and never got around to rating it, and to be fair rating whilst serving and dashing about like a mad man is probably not the fairest way to rate this. Pours golden in colour with a white head, this is fruity, hoppy and crisp, leading to a dry finish. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov13 3.4

Bottle, from Rhythm & Booze in Barton. Gold, thin but lasting white head and low condition.
