COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Occasional. Previously 3.9%.

A pale gold coloured ale, spicy and floral.
Originally called Twitter & Bisted, this beer was named after one of the favourite sayings of our former director, Graham ’Walter’ Dixon who died in 2008; we all miss you Graham; R.I.P, Graham and Twitter & Bisted.
Pale Gold in colour and with a dry taste (not unlike Graham’s humour) Twitter & Busted’s hop profile combines Challenger hops with Styrian Goldings to give spicy and floral notes.

worldbeertaste (1618) - AUSTRIA - NOV 18, 2011
Cask - Clear gold with some soapyness to the head. Thin plain body. Sweet smell of malt and some hop. Taste of malt and straw, with a sour lemon finish. Very plain and simple but went down easy..

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 27, 2011
Cask at Battersea Beer Festival, 10th Feb 2011. Hazy straw yellow with a line of white head. Great condition. Lovely fresh hop nose and flavour. Perfect weight for a session beer. Really, really drinkable. Definitely my light beer of the festival.

niquillis (812) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2011
On cask at Harbour Bar, Kirkcaldy. A very sour golden ale, floor cleaner and astringent taste. Certainly not to my taste.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2011
Cask (gravity dispense) at Battersea Beer Festival on 10 February 2011. Bright golden colour and in spanking condition. Lashings of grassy, aromatic hops on the nose. Some tropical fruit notes. Slightly less vibrant on the palate with more lemony citrus in evidence. Dry and quite bitter. Very fresh and clean. Extremely thirst quenching. An excellent example of the genre and a strong candidate for beer of the festival.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2010
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Neither the name nor the pumpclip featuring the dead clown are particularly amusing. Gold with a small white head. Cheesy, locker room malt aroma. Hint of muesli bar. Rather a vacant, empty taste with background malt and a mid bitter finish. It’s all right.

Fin (7343) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2010
Cask, gravity at Chadlington Beer Festival, Chadlington Village Hall, Oxon, 05-06-10 Pours gold with excellent clarity something which couldn’t be said of many of the other beers on at this beer festival. Crisp lightly stinging bitterness with citrus and in particular lemon coming through the most, refreshing beer with also dry at the end, decently hoppy and most enjoyable. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov13 3.4

ladnewton (1411) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2010
Cask at Cask Pub & Kitchen on 5th Marh. Gold with partly lacing white head. Yeasty smoky aroma then strong smoked cheese kick which is very much an acquired taste. Citric notes follow before a bitter finish on a pleasantly textured mouthfeel. Excellent.

leaparsons (8019) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2009
Cask, Nottingham Fest 09. Pale gold with a small head. Aromas are apricot and lemon with spices. Flavours are bitter lemon with crisp, grassy hops. Very hoppy and very decent session brew.
