Keg, The Kings Head, Leicester. Golden with a thin head. Aromas are biscuit with lemon and light grapefruit. Hints of pineapple with melon and cardboard. Flavours are grain with lemon. Some hints of cheese with a bit of a dead character and too much fizz. Enough to put you off keg. 2.20 for a half of this limp effort. Pah!
