Lovely white beer brewed close to my home town. Will do a better review later but this is a lovely beer for sipping. Best Ive had in a while.

Opening with a resounding pop of the swing top bottle, the immediate note is one of zest, Lemon or Orange, which unfortunately reminded me of some cleaning products. In the mouth the beer is initially very sweet so doesn’t give many clues to the alcohol of the beer. It has a rather vegetal quality on the finish, with the coriander seed adding an earthy spice rather than the more floral notes one would get from a coriander leaf. Initially I though this had little to offer a first, but it grew on me. Not a stout, but worth a punt.
