IanExcellent24 Oct 2006 Slight haze, copper colour with thick lasting beige head. Yeast and dry earthy hop aroma. Touch of citrus, and smells fresh. Beautiful in mouth, slides down too easy, fullish in mouth and in good condition despite the haze. Right level of natural carbonation. Then tingly hop finish. Good sharp bitterness. Best bitter I've had in a fortnight. Terrific.
