500 ml bottle from Tesco. Nice blonde coloured ale. A good example of the form. One of my favourite breweries.

jercraigs (7921) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2014
2014-07-02. Crisp dark yellow body with a small white head. Aroma is mild, light lemon and mild musty quality. Flavour is pretty mild, lightly bitter, mild pale malt with a lightly biscuity toasty character. Lemon touches come out as it warms. Average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Okay. On Cask at The Clachan Inn, Dornie

Cask conditioned handpump Cordwainer Northampton 25/04/ A golden coloured beer with a white head and lace. There’s an odd cleaning products thing going on here. Lemon, sweetness and a touch of glue too. Reasonably hopped. Interesting but flawed.

S - got some sweet hops but feint L- pretty sound light ale with a frothy head that stayed put for half the pint. T - faint flowery hop and sweet malt, which grew on me as I sunk it. No wow factor but good enough to have two or three. M - disappointing at first, something flattish about the condition may be. But by the end of the glass seemed irrelevant. O - a nice pint I can say no more.

Bottle. Pours light hazy light yellow with a finger thick creamy head. Aroma is citrusy hops, with oranges, grass as well as some grain. Full body with soft carbonation. Flavour is bitter with hoppy lemon peel.

Flaske delt med importør Willy, på brygga: farge og skum som pils, smaker dog litt bitrere og tørrere. OK tørstedrikk for 4,1 men engihet om at dette på ingen måte var minneverdig, så tørste var vi ikke.
