Cask; Regular. Originally a Summer seasonal. Also available bottled.
A very pale, straw-coloured aromatic Best Bitter, brewed with Northdown, Challenger and Bramling Cross hops. The spicy and aromatic nose give due notice that this is a well hopped beer, and the initial flavours on the tongue don’t disappoint – the intense hop flavours combine beautifully on the background of the sweet malt, and create a splendidly refreshing beer, which just has to be tried again – just to make sure!

Bottle that Dad shared with me- cheers! Absolute gusher on opening; what was left poured a very pale gold with a huge white head and a lot of floaters. Yeast and bread dough dominates the flavour with just a little lemon managing to sneak through. Not the best.
