COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & Bottle Conditioned: Regular.
This lingering combination of pale Maris Otter malts and choice German hops may make you pause for thought. As you contemplate the gentle biscuit malts, fresh Hersbrucker hops seduce the taste buds educating and enlightening the palate.
So why is Mr Einstein on the pump clip? It’s not rocket science... but it is thinking drinking.

jmgreenuk (4130) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 20, 2014
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a hazy light amber with a thin white head. The aroma is light malt and creamy caramel. The flavour is medium bitter with a malt hop bitter slightly watery palate. Medium bodied with a average carbonation. I really liked this. Lots of flavour and ideal for a session.

BOBBDrinker (66) - - APR 17, 2013
A strong well hopped golden ale, with a clear colour and medium white head. A crisp flavoured beer with all the hop that you could manage this is a slightly bitter beer which refreshes the palate and I will agree with the name it does make you think there are so many subtle flavours it make you think more about the beer that the drinking. There is a zesty aroma and the hoppiness is clear but overall it is a pleasant drink but not one that I could drink all night.

Cask at Penderels Oak, JDW, London. Pours rich gold with a tight, white foam head. Light toasted, doughy malts in the nose, some dirty hay. Medium sweet flavor, some drying lemon, sugar, faint woody leaves. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Moderately dry to finish, some toast, leaves and light grass, dry citrus, mild toast. Pretty average stuff.

Bottle. Pale gold with a healthy white head. Mild citrus hops with some hay/straw - a little spicy biscuit. in the mouth, there’s a nice spicy biscuit malt, with some high lemon hoppy notes and a hint of cereal. Quite interesting this with a nice crisp finish.
