Golden Ale with a wonderful hoppy nose from the Cascade Hops. It’s our thirst quencher popular with lager & ale drinkers.

The_Osprey (4236) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2015
Cask at The Cricketer’s, Richmond. Hand-written label. Dark orange, still, a little hazy, small scummy off-white head, dotted lacing. Aroma is brown bread, burnt seeds, ash. Body is medium, watery, low carbonation. Taste has more burnt seeds, dry hazelnut skins, watery plum and fruit n barley squash. Soft varnishy astringency with some spice and salt in the finish. Old-school stuff. Quite nice. Different to what I was expecting - I’ll just have to trust that the staff labelled the pump correctly!

mjs (5616) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 4, 2015
(Cask at Gallows Bird Magna Carta Real Ale Festival 2015) The beer poured pale golden and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had fruitiness and sweetness. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, malts, earth, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A nice brew but flavours were a bit too thin.

kwik-lime (1558) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2013
Soft smooth palate, some bready malt, a bit of sweetness nicely balanced by the hops. Lacking much strength in the flavour but a perfectly acceptable session bitter.
