Cask: Regular.
Introduced in 2004 as a summer seasonal in East Anglia and London; became a regular beer from February 2006.
Ingredients: Pale malt. Columbus and Chinook hops; Columbus in the copper and Chinook in the cask.
A golden bitter suffused with the aromas of a grapefruit grove. The massive citrus attack will burst on your palate allowing all the flavours of the imported New World hops to deliver their fruity bitterness. Adnams is “Exploring” new ground by sourcing interesting new hops from the USA.

Cask at the Willow Walk, 05/02/14. Clear pale blonde with a moderate off white covering. Nose is orange, toasted malts, lemon sherbet, light mango, touch of hoppage. Taste comprises mandarin, caramel, orange pith, straw. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, semi drying close. Ok GB, the new world hops come through a little, could do with a touch more.
