maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2007
Cask conditioned - handpump - Malt Shovel Northampton. A golden coloured beer with a nice white head. The aroma is subdued but there is some lemon sharpness in there. The taste is very bitter and there are some dry paper notes also. Too bitter for its own good.

Bottle bought from the farmers market at Stafford.Lovely floral hoppiness with some gentle bitterness. An excellent bottle conditioned ale and a pleasant examle of what the combination of a good beer and decent bottling can produce.
