On cask at Charles Lamb, Islington, London.

Slightly hazy bronze with no froth to speak of.
Honey and, sure enough, passion-fruit on the nose.
Apricot jam malts with some slight caramel and tropical fruit hops.
Nectar finish and steadily drying linger.
Light to medium, some stick and good chew.

Oh, wow. Just what a single hop should be. Simcoe, with no harshness - I just want to write "passion fruit" over and over again. If there's anything wrong, it's that the malts don't show up - could use some crystal for balance.
