COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
This remains our most popular session bitter. Four varieties of hops (Challenger, East Kent Goldings, Pioneer, and Styrian Goldings) provide a full range of floral and citrus aromas, and a moreish bitterness that drinks superbly down the glass.

Cask at Land of Liberty Peace and Plenty, Chorleywood, Herts. A golden coloured pour with a small white head on top. Hoppy, malty aroma. Tastes hoppy, malty, some lemon. Not exactly mind blowing but OK.

jackl (4994) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 18, 2013
Cask @ The Bricklayers Arms, Putney. The pour’s gold with a small head. The nose is general pale malt. A hint of lemon and orchard fruits. Fairly faint. The taste is similarly benign. Pale malt and mild grain. A bit of dough. Light shag tobacco on the finish. Light body, fine carbonation. Overall, decent if forgettable.

Theydon_Bois (9960) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2013
Cask at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green, 12/01/13. Clear pale golden with a thin white head that retains well. Nose is light citrus, some pine, pale malt, grain, barley. Taste follows - light hoppage, pale malt, grass. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Ok - nothing to shout about!

Svesse (6296) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2012
(Cask at Priory Arms, Stockwell, London, 21 April 2012) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of biscuits, citrus and grass. Malty, fruity taste with biscuity malt, grass, citrus and slightly dusty hops in a finish with a gentle bitterness. Rather light body, with balanced sweetness. Not really exciting, but decent and quite drinkable.

squarta (68) - - MAR 12, 2012
Si presenta chiara e dorata con una schiuma alta e densa. All’olfatto si presenta con note erbacee accentuate e frutta matura, con una presenza netta del lievito che lascia presagire un sapore altrettanto "lievitoso". La prima sorsata invece rivela la complessa luppolatura mentre il lievito sparisce completamente. Un’altra clamorosa assenza e’ quella delle bollicine, che si contano davvero con il contagocce lasciando quasi l’impressione di una birra dimenticata aperta in frigo. Le note aromatiche sono diverse, dai fiori di campo agli agrumi e chiude con un amaro non particolarmente marcato che lascia una gradevole sensazione di equilibrio.
