Cask conditioned - handpump - GBBF 2005. A bright golden coloured beer with a good citrus hop aroma. The taste has some good hoppiness but the malts taste a little past it. Not fresh enough for me.

Half pint pulled at the Great British Beer Festival, a clear straw yellow and thin head. Aroma is fruity hops, but different. A flowery flavour, smooth in the mouth with a nice amount of bitterness.

Cask at GBBF 2005
Again another brewery that I expect to have a good beer from but on this occasion I was disappointed. Pale gold, eggy nose with some hay/hop. Thin in mouth with thin quicly disappearing hoppy dry finish

A great light well hopped session ale. This was very drinkable and impressive for it’s strength. Well worth a try have a look at the brewery if you can.
