A light, dry, but refreshing Summer pint. Brewed to give a crisp hop flavour and aftertaste and a light golden colour. An ideal lunchtime drink.

Lonick (1519) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 30, 2013
Pours deep yellow/gold, sulphur (farts) on the nose. Nice enough up front but something a little bit dirty about it and I don’t mean that in a good way.
