A glorious golden ale with an outstanding well hopped fruity finish.
Is there a challenger to this outstandingly well hopped fruity ale? Our brewers golden recipe uses Maris Otter malt combined with three spicy aromatic hops. Which offers a cascade of floral flavours followed by a very smooth bitter finish.

Cask conditioned at Harbury Beer Festival ’16, Harbury, Warks. Beautiful, clear amber with white head. There is a sweet, fruity maltiness to this, biscuity with a tropical fruit note. Some toffee, caramel hints. Lasting on the palate. Really very pleasant.

stravale (2847) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - NOV 6, 2012
Cask @ Black Hotel, Sheffield
Amber, dense thin white head, good lacing
Aroma - some cereal malts, pale caramel, little aroma
Taste - cereal malts, fairly bitter english hops, dab of honey, light caramel, not a lot going on here for 5.2% abv
Palate - soft carb, thin to medium body, quite oily. Finish of caramel malts and soft bitter cereal hops
Overall - Hmmm it’s NO hop bomb, more a single bubble bursting in some bubble wrap

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2007
Clear golden pour wearing an initial white head that rapidly diminishes. Brightly, strongly hopped ale trying to live up to its name. Very dry, floral, orangey and even grapefruity aromas. The light grassiness feels more English already, so does the growing sunflower seed and sesame, cerealic sweet maltiness that we find in mouth. Mostly an aromatic hop bill. Well-balanced and with a grip. Light-bodied, fitting carbonation.
