Pale, amber coloured ale. Clean, crisp and bitter, using Goldings and Fuggles. This is one of those "one-off" brews that proved so popular we’re keeping it as a regular.

Buona amber ale tradizionalissima inglese, bevuta al 4:20 non filtrata, con bei lieviti fa la sua porca figura in questa estate rovente.

Cask @ Akkurat. Almost clear amber, lasting small white head. Faint sweet caramel aroma, honey, hay and grass. Very smooth and rounded mouthfeel. Light malty biscuits taste with floral and grassy hops, fruity notes, ripe pear and honeydew melon. Long pleasant bitter finish.

On tap at the White Horse. Hazy amber beer, suddy white head. Light dry palate, low carbonation. Nice hops that induce a brief involuntary flutter of the eyelids! Lemon citrus with tangerine and grapefruit. A pretty fruity tasty bitter - every gobfull holds interest! Dry finish.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2008 Cask at Churchills Tavern - Ramsgate. Perfumey, hoppy aroma. Fruity malt flavour, light golden colour. Really refreshing light bitter. Before this pint I’d found this beer fairly mediocre, but this one was outstanding.

Cask at the Lovebox Festival. I’ll be honest: I didn’t take great notes on this one. In fact, I didn’t really take any notes. But I’ll tell you what, this was a fine beer. A mighty fine beer, in some ways, at least. Had some dry, lightly toasted malts and hints of dried leaves. The body was light and the carbonation was fine. It wasn’t very sweet and had, perhaps, some light berry notes to complement the dry, toasty malts. I enjoyed it overall.

A pleasant beer that was easily drinkable on a cold broadstairs afternoon!

Cask at the Wellington, Birmingham. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is light malt, light hop. The flavour is medium to light bitter with a smooth malt hop bitter palate and a short bitter finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. A superb session bitter and one of the best I’ve had. Brings back memories of Eddie’s days at the Fiddler. Come back please Eddie, all is forgiven :-) Seriously, we would love to see your cask beers back there as guests.
