Cask; Regular.
Our double Gold Medal winning beer! This, my favourite beer, is light in colour and more hoppy than a caffeine fuelled bunny on a bouncy castle. At 3.6% abv, you could sit back and drink this one all day. Full of Elderflower notes. Lager drinkers, you might like this one.
Brewed as a one off for Nailsworth’s Nailstock People’s Festival. However, it proved too popular to be consigned to the brewery archives and continues as a regular beer.

Golden with a curranty fruity hop character. Taste is more understated. Finishes a bit bland.

Leighton (18714) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2011
Cask at CPK. Pours a clear, vibrant yellow-gold with a filmy, white head. Aroma holds some sweaty malts, wet hay, cereal. Lightly sweet flavor, hints of spices and herbs, some Trix cereal (weirtd, I know), hay and straw bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Finishes pretty dry, some cereal and fruitiness, more straw. Not bad, not great.

Cask handpull, The Village Inn, Nailsworth. Brilliant pale gold with a fine white cap. Sulphur, lemon sherbet and lime aroma. Dusty lemon sherbet, malted milk, faint egg again, delicate floral and soapy hop. Balanced and good.

downender (7960) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2008
Cask-conditioned at the Village Inn, Nailsworth 28/6/08. Clear gold with a decent white head that left plenty of lacing down the glass. Citrus and elderflower aroma, followed by a sweetish malt flavour and a short, grassy hop finish. Good.

harrisoni (17352) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2008
Cask gravity at Reading BF 08. Gold beer with some citrus hops. Bit of yeast character, but to be honest, fairly much like a hundred other UK beers at present. Even Jan and Charlotte (Fonefan) have noticed a disappearance of brown bitters in favour of these golden slightly citrusy beers in the UK.
