COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
A refreshing golden bitter brimming with character…not to mention citrus hops and fruit. Made with 100% Maris Otter malt, and brewed using a single variety hop…English Fuggles. A malty fresh vitality gives way to a full bittersweet finish…pure Gold!

niquillis (1206) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2014
On cask at Greyhound, Hartshill. Pours amber with white head. Quite earthy which makes it slightly weird. Butterscotch tries to fight out at the end. It’s OK.

Benzai (8986) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2014
Sampled @ GBBF day 2. Clear orange golden "apple juice" color, small off-white head. Smell and taste malts, a slightly hoppy fruitiness, a slight fruity bitterness. Decently balanced actually, even though I don’t really like it. Average body and carbonation. Ok beer.

Japalo (1266) - DENMARK - JUL 23, 2014
Cask@The ale house, Bath. Haze dark golden. Half finger dense foam. Some fizz. Earthy grassy dusty. It must be dry hop with the english fuggle! Dry sweet. Not bad.

4.4% gold to amber colour (not surprising) with a thin head, called a bitter but more like a tasty lager.
