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.

Svesse (7932) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 7, 2016
(Cask at Dean Swift, Tower Bridge, London, 23 April 2016) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of peaches, bready malt and grass. Malty, fruity taste with soft malt, peaches, pineapple, grass, a touch of yeast and a gentle bitterness. Light body, with a touch of sweetness. Well balanced and tasty, but hardly inspiring. Quite enjoyable.
