Craft Clerkenwell. Almost clear amber beer, little white head. Palate is smooth and semi dry, mild fine carbonation. Lovely sweet hops - grapefruit, tangerine, peach, mango and others. Trace of apple. Finishes dry with some marmalade bitterness. Nice beer, keeps you coming back for more.

Chestnut brown with alight offwhite head. Rich Resinous, citrus, nose. Medium body, nz fresh hop bitterness and grapefruit. Lots of late hopping, not in your face bitter as balanced by malt. Lovely and easier drinking than last year’s, though completely different!
