COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Regular & Bottled, filtered;
A fine blond low-gravity beer with a light, natural fizz and citrus notes with a sweet, flora aroma. The initial sweetness gives way to a refreshing burst of hop flavour which lingers through to a crisp dry finish. Twisted Spire will appeal to the palates of both the die-hard ale drinker and potential lager convert.

Bottle. It pours a clear, golden body and a small white head. The aroma is grassy and citrusy, pretty British. Some lemon. There’s a nice bitterness in the flavor, along with the grass and citrus recognized in the aroma. Medium body, pretty dry on the palate. Short, bitter finish. Nothing impressive going on here, but it’s at least quenching. 140110

500ml bottle not sure where from. Pleasant middle-of-the-road session ale, medium body with pale malts and light fruit hops. Much better than the last one I had from these guys.

Sigmund (4820) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 20, 2013
500 ml clear bottle, from Vaaland, Bryne. ABV is 3.6%. Very pale golden colour, moderate white head. Typical clear bottle "skunky" and Heineken-like aroma. Sharpish hoppy bitterness throughout, but little hop flavour besides the bitterness. No body to support the bitterness. Not a very nice beer, the poorest I’ve had from Hobsons so far. Won’t buy again.
