COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A great aroma and powerful upfront hoppy bitterness give way to an explosion of citrus and pine flavours. A full on hop attack not for the faint hearted!

MichaelAwesome (4447) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 11, 2014
On tap at the Ale House in Cowes. Seems to be my winner of the UK holidays so far. Mild carbo, easily drinkable, full body, fine aromas of grass, honey, hops and straw. Mild one with that special touch of crispiness. Have to go there tomorrow and drink another pint of it. Thumbs up.

McTapps (4462) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 11, 2014
On tap at the Cowes Ale House in Cows. Pours out in a deep golden colour with low head and flat body.Wonderful aroma of intense hops and peaches with grassy hints. Taste of intense but not that bitter hops, caramel, straw, hay, thyme, mild herbs, mild flowers and mild fruits. Smooth finish and it is just very quaffable and warming. Loved it.

Seen this around a lot and didn’t get the joke until yesterday. Cask - pale golden with a clean white head, thick lacing and fairly good retention. Aroma of grass, citrus and hints of tropical fruit. Taste of herbs and light spice, hints of lemon and grass, some sourness. Quite dry with a light body.
