COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.

Avocet is Devon’s original organic real ale. Since its creation in 2008, this ale has been a favourite from the start. With it’s pale blonde colour this is a modern-style distinctly flavoured beer. Made with three organic hop varieties, it has a refreshing citrus taste and an attractive aroma.
A distinctively-flavoured beer with refreshing citrus taste and attractive aroma. Light gold in colour and wonderfully refreshing.

Cimbasso (328) - - JAN 9, 2015
Sampled from a bottle from the brewery (thanks, Rachel!). Pale straw colour with a good white head. Aromas of doughy, bread-like malts and citrusy hops. Taste is light, with bready malts and a slight citrus tang. No sourness but a distinct smokiness, which is slightly unexpected in this style, but is actually very pleasant. A good, but very light, golden ale.

Leighton (13022) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2013
Gravity cask at the Wandsworth Common Halloween Beer Festival - Le Gothique, London. Pours clear, bright gold with a frothy, white head. Nose of pale, lightly doughy malts with hints of lemon, too. Light to medium sweet flavor with basic white bread pale malts and supporting citrus zip. Light bodied with fine carbonation; in great condition. Sweet finish with mellow straw bitterness, some faint lemon rind. An excellent low ABV session beer.

Proof that God loves us/ You can drink this until it comes out your ears and each one is as lovely as the last. A nice tangy beer without a sour aftertaste.
