COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
Glott’s Hop is our strongest beer, and as it’s name implies is very hoppy. It’s brewed with Halcyon malt and Pioneer hops. It’s light, strong and full of flavour.

Cask conditioned at The Olde Trip to Jerusalem, Nottingham. Gold with white head. Sweet malty beer with a vague, plummy fruitiness, hints of resinous hop perhaps, all a little muddled, just ok.

American-influenced English golden ale with pale golden blonde colour, grassy hops (dry-hopping), sweetish pale malts and apple in the nose, fruity, sweetish taste quickly evolving into a citrussy and peppery hoppiness, long finish.

Snegurochka (389) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 25, 2012
Pint, cask @Wetherspoons. First beer after our long journey from Tromsø to Manchester. Golden clear body, with sweet aroma of grass, honey and some hops. Quite anonymous, though. Better taste than aroma, dry hops, hay with a touch of grain. Pleasant start! The bartender wasn’t sure if this foreign girl knew what she was ordering, so he insisted on me trying it first and gave me a free sample. Nice:-)

Half, hand pulled at Wetherspoons (Manchester & County). Clear amber-gold, naked surface. Subdued aroma of grassy hops. Grass, resin and lemony hops to the taste buds. Semi-dry hopped ending. Refreshing after the long journey from Norway (Manchester, 04.07.2012).

Cask, gravity, at The Pig ’n’ Falcon, St Neots, Cambridgeshire, in the Pig’s Winter Festival ’11. Copper gold. faint bran and cardboard aroma. rather thin watery taste with some leaf and nettle. Mid bitter finish. I was expecting more, and was disappointed.

Leighton (13578) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2010
Gravity cask at the Wandsworth Halloween Beer Festival, 2010. Pours clear, yellow-gold with a slight, white head. Straw and grass make up the nose. Flavor is lightly sweet, with some carmel and honey, followed by a delicate bitterness comprised of earth and more straw. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Finishes a bit of sugar, along with more delicate hops. Very nice.
