A refreshing "thirst quenching bitter", with an exceptional taste, light amber in colour with a rounded malty/hoppy pallet. Brewed to be enjoyed by gardeners or gentry alike. First brewed as an exclusive celebration beer for the Royal Horticultural Society garden at Wisley for their 100 year Centenary, Gardener’s Tipple proved to be a great success. We brew a rounded malty base from finest English malted barley in the mash tun and combine it with fresh local Fuggles and Goldings whole hop flowers in the copper to achieve a long lasting finish. Light amber in colour, it is a refreshing and thirst quenching bitter, perfect for relaxing after a hard day in the garden.

Holmen1 (3287) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 25, 2015
Flaske delt med Willy på brygga: klar kobber/mahognyfarbe med filmskum. Gress og litt blomsteraktig aroma med et hint av honningsødme. Smaken likeledes, mild og kledelig gressaktig bitter. Etter hvert som temperaturen i glasset stiger sniker det seg inn en ettersmak av kardemomme og kokt broccoli. Neppe noe problem å helle innpå en veltrukket pint av denne på en landsens pub en solfylt sommerdag i England.

ERB92 (496) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 21, 2015
Caramel, grass, hay and hints of honey and dried fruits in the aroma. Amber with a off-white head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium body with a average carbonation. Overall a decent bitter, not particularly interesting i any way, but enjoyable.

Gorm (1677) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JAN 19, 2015
Klar rødlig farve med lyst skum. Lukt av malt, karamell, rosin og humle. Smak av malt, karamell, rosin, gress og sitrus. Noe bitter og tørr avslutning. Det Gode Brygg.
