Cask; Regular. Originally a special but was made permanent.
Note: The original version of this beer used Pale Ale malt, Crystal malt, Munich & some Wheat malt and the hops were specified as Columbus, Chinook & Citra.

At 4.5% abv, this Pale Ale has a good assertive pithy bitterness and a malty backbone. It is brewed with a selection of malts – Pale Ale, Rye Crystal and Cara – we use Citra, and a blend of other American hop varieties to create some great citrus flavours.

Cask at Victoria Inn, Holkham Hall, Norfolk. Appears pale golden with a decent white head that laces well. Aromas of cereal malts, hay, mild caramel and citrus hops. Sweet malts up front balanced by a decent citrusy hop bitterness. Smooth lightish flattish palate with easy sessionability. Pleasant.

Cask at The Three Tun Tavern. No notes, from memory. Clear amber, lasting off white head, pleasant hoppy aroma, flavour is a smooth drinking malt with a fair hop bite in the finish. Silky mouthfeel, some residual bitterness in the finish. Very enjoyable and easy drinking.

Clear copper coloured with a medium sized good lacing white head. Dominated by citrus hop notes, light grain, straw. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, light/medium sweet and medium bitter. Light dry finish. Perhaps a bit one dimensional but taste is pleasant and it drinks pretty easy.
