Cask at Windsor Castle, Lye. Exceptionally pale, but with a beautiful creamed white top. Definitely UK hop dominated. Clean, crisp, pretty bone dry, with an iced bun finish. A very proficient bitter.
Cask at the Briar Rose (Wetherspoon) Birmingham, UK on 28th December 2009. Gold with a durable white head of foam. IPA-like hoppiness. Citric grapefruit and hempy hop in the main kick with astringent citric finish on a smoothish mouthfeel. Initial taste close to that of some American IPAs I have tasted last summer! Highly flavoursome for 4.4%
