All of our beers are inspired by the natural and wild surroundings in which we live and play. This one is a pale ale exhibiting fruity gooseberry and orange aromas followed by a crisp finish.

500ml bottle from little shop in Dunsten. Murky dark orange brown coloured pour. Persistent thin white head. Aroma is lemon and berry hop, chalky, pineapple. Palate is chalky and spritzy carbonation. Flavour is wheat malts, light touch of spice. Berry hop. Reminds me of a kernel.

Bottle from Uncle Phil - thanks! Very dry, hazy looking, some citron peel. A long, quite refreshing drink.

leebotton (406) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2014
Really proper fruity nose of strawberries alongside some hay and toffee. Bit of a bubbly head, cream and the beer is deep orange. A big, fine carbonation, slight acridity from hops which I have produced myself accidentally when homebrewing, not a big fan of that aspect but it is only slight. Not an awful lot going on otherwise apart from a very subtle peppery aftertaste but itís a clean drink and would improve a sunny summers day. A strange pale though, drunk this at first thinking it was the saison and that seemed more fitting!

Pours a hazy, deep gold (sediment a little loose in the bottle, but hazy beer is perfectly reasonable considering unfined unfiltered etc.). Condition a little poor, thin white head that lasts not very long at all. Strong aroma of fruity English hops (I would guess probably challenger) and moderate yeast esters. Not particularly clean but lots of fruit. Taste is mildly citrusy, and juicy, with some relatively unclean fermentation notes. Fairly good malt body, little to speak of, not overly bready or toasty for the style. finish is hoppy, bitter, but not very well-rounded or cisp/sharp. Overall, good effort but needs improvement in a fair few areas. I guess thatís what being a new brewery is about

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2014
Bottle from The Offie, Leicester. Clouded bronze with a rocky, yeast-fed head. Moderately juicy nose with Fruit Salad aspects; gooseberry and clove-like esters. Yeast-driven, sourish brew with hints of gooseberry, TCP and muted tropical hop (pineapple) peppered liberally with clove. Rustic. Not the kind of hopped-up new generation effort I was hoping for, but decent nonetheless.

hazy amber beer with a small white head. Palate is crisp and dry. Light dry malt with caramel. Whisper of ripe orange hops. Dry finish. Bah!

Quack-Duck (9164) - Down South, GERMANY - OCT 13, 2013
bottle from Tuckers Malgtings. MGolden colour, mid-sized white head. Malty base, pleasantly hoppy with a resin-herbal character. Delicoous and moreish.

leaparsons (9949) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2013
Bottle. Golden brown with a white head. Aromas are biscuit and toffee with oranges, gooseberry and grapefruit. Cookie dough with apple and low floral, woody pine. Flavours are sweet malts with hints of honey. Mixed tropical and autumn fruit with a lightly fruity bitterness. Quite dry and woody with herbal notes. Nice.

johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2013
Bottle from West Country Ales. Gently citric nose with notes of gooseberry, lychee and lemon peel. Pours medium amber with a beige head and good lace. Flavour is orange and a touch of cardamon with some candied grapefruit rind and the slightest hint of dishwater. Finish is back-of-the-tongue bittersweet with more citrus coming through (some lemon acid drops, some more gooseberry). Slightly let down by being over-carbed which gives an acidic mouthfeel and a homebrew character, but aside from this it definitely shows promise from this very new brewer.
