Cask at the Craft Beer Co, London on 21st September 2012. Hazy copper with thin white foam and partial lacing. Fruity, zesty aroma. Tangy lemon citrus in a fruity liquid, with berries and apples. Musty, "bookcase" note late before bittersweet and slightly sour finish. Interesting ale, though not quite a favourite.
