Transcribed from Notes of 20/10/2006, this was the third beer tasted at the Capitol, a JDW pub at Forest Hill, SE London, during the chain's Full Moon Beer Festival.

A: coming in a bright and clear dark golden hue laced with orangey glows,, topped with a creamy and tight off-white froth with good retention and rather low carbonation.
S: lightly fruity and citric, with a touch of sweet lemon; as it warms, a lightly savoury-sweet maltiness follows up to help attain a balance. Overall, not quite pronounced though.
T: bitter-sweet citric/grapefruity zestiness ensued closely by a maltiness as from gently toasted pale malts and even lager malts... gradually, a dryish palate of richly zesty hoppiness takes over, with more soothing bitterness and omnipresent light-maltiness to linger in the finish.
M&D: almost perfect in mouthfeel for a cask blond bitter, this is a light+ bodied session-type bitter benefiting from a depth and complexity endowed by a good amount of citric hops. Not bad!
