Adnams Cashmere 4.7%, an IPA. Pours clear golden. Aroma, yeasty. Taste is hops, lemon and gooseberry. So, so far from my taste. Gooseberry must be the new Grapefruit.
(Bluecoat, Rotherham).

Came up short, 37 of 40, not helped by being poorly from last Thursday.

One disappointment .. on more than one occasion walking in and spotting the clip for an ale still required only to be told 'we have the pump clip but not the beer'. This happened in Warrington and Manchester. Somewhat frustrating!
