COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
A beer derived from years of practice searching for the perfect pint, of course hoping secretly that you never actually find it! In other words, a pint suited to the taste- buds of our head brewer that can be savoured several times in one session without feeling like the bottom has fallen out of your world (or vice-versa!). Golden, hoppy, clean on the palate and leaving a long lingering after-taste that will haunt you until you quest for more.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2008
Cask, gravity dispense, at 5th Globe Beer Festival, Dunstable, Bedfordshire. Dark gold with a small white head. Malt and some hops in the aroma. Sweet quite gentle malt taste. The (rather silly) name suggests a hoppy finish, but I detected little bitterness.

Tasting notes from 2003 Harbury Beer Festival. Dark golden with frothy head. Citrus and sweet fruit aroma. Sweeter than I expected with hop citrus notes. Lasting bitter finish.
