COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Seasonal - May & June (Originally a Special in 2006 under the name Cotswold Lion).
Pride of the Cotswolds.
The beer is a pale fruity ale, with a citrus lime aroma, and hopped only with Fuggles. After a successful launch in 2006, Lion is back for a seasonal slot. It is the first single hop varietal beer to be brewed by Hook Norton Brewery.

jmgreenuk (4472) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 23, 2014
Cask at the Wellington, Birmingham. Poured a clear medium amber with a broken bubbly white head. The aroma is weak malt. The flavour is light bitter with a watery malt light hop bitter palate. Light bodied with flat carbonation. Not overly impressed. No life and not a lot of flavour with a weak palate.
