Hand-pulled half pint at the 2012 Shrewsbury Beer Festival (1st Nov).

Light amber body with a tight white head that tried to hang around but turned into a wisp and collar half way down the tasting.

The nose was fairly weak: spicy hops and maybe a biscuity malt hint.

The taste was all hop, spicy, semi-bitter and not citrusy, which is a change for Salopian at the moment.

Pleasantly surprised by the brew: I thought it might be bland and boring (like some of the Blackwater range), but it wasn't.
