Cask; Regular. Also available in 18 and 36 pint containers direct from the brewery and in bottles.
Notably hoppy ale which is light to medium-bodied, clean-tasting, refreshingly dry, with a balancing sweetness. Citrus, pale malt aroma and dry, bitter finish. Consistent. Amber gold in colour.

JorgeLee (1065) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2013
Bottle from Independent Spirit in Bath. Golden colour, thin white head, reasonably high carbonation. Quite a sweet malty character to this one (hint of butter maybe?) with a slightly unusual elementy (sulphur?) character. Some hops, medium bitterness. Not bad, interesting enough.

BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2012
500ml bottle, best before Dec 2012: poured into a UK pint sleeve on 16 July 2012. Mid-golden body, clear and clean: good white blanket of foaming bubbles on top. More hops than malts: the nose and taste majoring on semi-citrus hop flavours. Bitter-sweet really in the mouth with the bitterness winning in every sip especially towards the end as the mouth dries. Did it ring my bell? Yes, one of the better hoppy brews out there (IMHO).
