COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask.
Light in colour and easy to drink, this dry hopped ale is served through a swan neck which gives the beer a rounded taste and a refreshing finish with a fine hoppy character.

This beer doesn't seem to react well to bad handling, I have had very good pints, but also very poor ones. The rating is for the better pints, but only give it a try if you trust the Landlord.

Old notes from way back when. Before 2003 certainly. Donít usually enter pre-RateBeer notes but, since this is retired and I wonít get it again, what the heck. Cask (handpump), tight sparkler. A soft, thin, amber-coloured session bitter of little distinction. Too bland to find glaring faults. Probably dumped in favour of the similar strength King & Barnes Bitter so that Badger could say they hadnít axed K & B beers altogether. No great loss.

Cask Handpump at the Pig & Porcupine, Manchester 31/08/2002 Amber golden coloured slightly pale and fruity. Acidic taste. Hop finish.

skortila (4619) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAR 11, 2003
Hoppy aroma, bit fruity. The beer looks like applejuice. No head. And it's not just the looks; I was amazed I actually tasted apples in the beer, furthermore hoppy and bitter taste. palate is moderate bitter. Not impressive.

caesar (5315) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 10, 2003
Clear orange color, hardly any foam. Hoppy aroma. Light hoppy and bitter taste. Not a drain pour, but i would not order it again.
