COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask
Force Four has been designed to celebrate all things great about our British sailing team ahead of the 2012 Olympics. It is a wonderfully crisp and hoppy blonde beer. The careful addition of wheat provides a wonderful lacing to the glass. Pale straw in colour, this beer has a wonderful hop aroma and a lingering crisp dry finish.

Railway Tavern, Bexley. Pale, mildly hoppy. Some apple, some apricot, some sourness. A few small pieces at the bottom of my glass. OK, but it’s an indifferent, amateurish sort of beer.
