Cask pint: hand-pulled in a local pub (White Lion, Wellington; Shropshire). This pub majors on beers brewed up the road by Salopian although it also stocks other breweries beers too.

Pleasant golden colour, a bit light for my ideal UK bitter, but it looked in good condition and the head of white foam produced some good lacing.

The nose was predominantly of citrus flavoured hops: pink grape fruit being my choice of aroma.

The taste had an easy blend of those grapefruits mentioned in the nose with a baked bread maltiness that balanced each other nicely. The beer initially started off citrusy, the malts then arrived before the hop bitterness finished off each sip.

The 4.5% ABV sat well in the body and the whole experience was most enjoyable.
