From cask dispense at the Old Coffee House, Soho.

Pours a slightly hazy light golden/blonde with a very small frothy white head

Fruity citrus notes predominate along with a little grass/hay and earthiness

Flavour wise this beer is lacking somewhat!

Only very faint hints of citrus fruit, quite a light malty taste, some spice and an alcohol taste, just not a lot going on but not unpleasant!

Mouthfeel was fairly light to medium, minimal carbonation, easily drinkable

In summary - OK. I don't think the serving temperature championed this beer or style, too cold! Flavours perhaps came out a little more as my glass/beer warmed!

Not a very saison like saison and can't believe it was 8%, nothing to justify this high ABV other than a faint background alcohol taste.

If this was the only cask ale on in a given pub, I'd have no qualms about having it again, but would probably investigate others first before revisiting!
