Oystercatcher takes its name from a local bird also known in the area as Sea Pie. Brewed with three varieties of hops - Pilot, Cascade and Brewer’s Gold - to give a beer with good body and a distinctly hoppy flavour.

Cask at Jolly Sailors, Brancaster Staithe, Norfolk. Clear, pale amber. No head. Fruity aroma. Some caramel. Taste is fruity dry. Had this a dozen times before and always liked it. Caught it on a bad day, this time, I think.

Cask. Pours clear amber with a white head. Aroma is fruity with slight vinegar. Flavour is fruity, light malt and a bit of a nasty sharpness. Maybe slightly off..

BCA picked up at Branthill Farm Beer shop, Wells-Next-The Sea, Norfolk 04-07-09 Pours amber little head noted. There is plenty of yeast in suspension but to be fair it was a bad pour by yours truly and after a while it had settled quite well. Nice malty nose. The taste is simple, lightly malty, nice sweetness throughout with some good juicy fruit to balance things out, there is also some hoppiness there but more in a supporting role. I like this beer as it is just a simple uncomplicated session beer. A7 A3 F7 P3 Ov14 3.4
