COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & Bottle conditioned; Occasional.

Originally brewed in 2011 as a “Celebration Of English Hops” and whilst it was a nice beer, it didn’t quite fulfil its remit of showcasing English hops and proving to the world that interesting, aromatic, juicy hops can be grown here too.
Brewed again in 2012 with copious late additions of three of the finest English hops we found in January 2012 at Faram’s.
Has reappeared since.

fantti (705) - FINLAND - NOV 14, 2013
Pours golden-coloured and clear, with good foam, which leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma has a lot of fruity hoppiness, a little caramel, hay and nuts. Taste is wood and grassy hoppiness, citrus, slightly metally and with yeast a little stuffy. Palate is very hoppy, almost too bitter. It is also quite dry and fresh. The body doesn’t carry the hoppiness totally and this is little unstable.

johndoughty (3979) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2013
Bottle. Slightly cloudy and orange appearance. Bitterness dominates but citrus creeps in. Pleasant but a bit too bitter for my personal taste. Still worth trying.

villevav (217) - FINLAND - NOV 22, 2013
Tiheä pienikuplainen vaahto, samea, tumman kellertävä. Sitruksinen, hieman kirpeä ja pihkainen tuoksu, jossa myös hieman hiivaa. Maussa päälimmäisenä sitruksinen humalointi, joka jatkuu aina jälkimakuun asti. Keskitukeva runko, keskiasteinen hiilihapotus.
