500ml Bottle: BBD end of Dec 2013, poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard on 15th Oct 2013. The wife brought this home (along with a ’Munich’ bottle) from some Christmas market last year, glad she did. Pours a golden/pale amber, with a cream coloured head. Hop front and finish with a pleasing malt center: slight floral and fruit notes with a semi-dry, hop bitter ending. Just seemed right and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Cask (gravity dispense) at Pigs Ear Beer Festival, day 2 on 1 December 2010. Amber / gold colour. Slightly grainy malt aroma with a less than enticing sweaty sock edge. Livened up a bit on the palate. Malt is a little bready, with some balancing tangy hops - some citrus. OK but didn’t seem in the greatest nick to me.

Pigs Ear. Clear gold beer with a residual white head. Light semi dry palate. A little toffee malt well balanced with minerally mild orange hop. Finishes semi dry. Well joined up and very drinkable.

Cask at the Pig’s Ear BF 2010. Orange-gold pour with light bubbles for a head. Heavy bread aroma, with some caramel and hay hops. Nice balance in the flavor. More very bready malts, faint peanuts, some orange citrus, light, straw hops. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Some citrus bitters linger in the finish with light, bready malts. Some earthy hops in the throat. Quite good overall.
