An elegant, straw coloured bitter. The hint of sweetness is complemented by subtle hop flavours, leading to a dry finish. Brewed using Maris Otter pale Ale malt, Hobson's yeast and finished with Worcestershire Goldings and Herefordshire Progress hops.

Cask at the Bell & Talbot, Bridgnorth. Light gold with a small uneven white head. Light malty aroma. Taste picks up a bit with a basic but pleasant bittersweet. Hops arenít particularly noticeable so the malt rules the roost. A bit warm and buttery in the finish.no thanks.

Bottle picked up from Morrisonís Minehead. Light golden yellow coloured pour with a thin lasting white head and a fine haze. Aroma is nice fresh grains / straw faint citrus. Nice little saison yeast thing on the nose as well. Flavour is composed light earthy grains, little wheat, light citrus. Palate is nice and grainy, moderate carbonation. Pretty decent.

500ml bottle into a nonic. Purchased at Bruisiní Ales in Asheville with a best before date of August 2015; 5% abv. Pours a slightly hazy straw yellow with a thick an creamy one finger white head. The head retention is downright amazing for such a light beer. Huge staying power and great lacing to boot. If there is one thing that is lacking on this beer it is the aroma. Not a lot to comment about here but there is sweet grain with just a slight hint of toast. The flavor really is more impressive with sweet caramel and toffee along with a bit of cereal grain and floral hops. Bitterness is on the light side but plenty enough to counter the sweetness and it really lets the malt shine through. The mouthfeel has some substance with a drying and lingering bitterness. Overall, this is a really great English bitter and a very tasty beer overall. Oh what I would give to have this out of a cask. Iím glad I was able to pick this up.
