Cask; Regular.
Our flagship brew, and the winner of many beer festivals. This lager style beer with a crisp, dry flavour and citrus fruity aroma is ideal for drinking anytime, but is partcularly well suited to the Spring and Summer months.

Pint at "meet the brewer" at the central in Gateshead. Golden ale with a thin white head fresh and fruity, with the currently fashionable grapefruit flavour. I particularly enjoyed that there is more of a malt balance to the bitterness than with a lot of blond ales.

Hoppy malt nose with just a bit of citrus. Pale gold colour with thin white head. Smooth medium texture. Light citrus start with a sweet grape center and sour hop finish. Transition is very well balanced and leaves the mouth just a little dry, thisty for more. Citrus is a little much.

Cask (gravity) - The Duke of Wellington, Norwich. Small & loose though lasting bubbly white head, clear golden body. Sherbet lemon hop, pale malt, some apple & lime aromas. On the tongue it’s similar again, dominated by a citrus bitterness. Some astringency & tang. Light to medium body, mostly soft on the palate with some carbonation & a medium length crisp hop finish.

Cheeky half at The Waters Green Tavern, Macclesfield. Opposite the station for anyone ever visiting. Not sure why you would but there you go. Pale yellow gold with a thin white head. Boring. The same kind of beer as they always have on in there. Does my swede in. So many styles of beer and all he ever has is bitters and thin dry hoppy and citrus golden ales like this one. The obligatory hit of grapefruit before a bitter finish. Bah humbug..
