Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.
A very pale golden ale. A real hoppy beer packed with American Columbus hops - very bitter and thirst quenching with a satisfying herbal finish and massive aromas.

On cask at Odiham and Greywell Cricket Club. Pours golden with a hoppy aroma. A very impressive beer, with a complex character and brimming with somewhat tropical flavours. Fruity on the palate with hints of orange and other citrus flavours but leading to a dry finish with a fairly moderate bitterness. Big fan!

AshtonMcCobb (3764) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 14, 2014
On cask at the Guildford Arms. Appearance - pale golden with a proportionate head. Nose - lemon and grapefruit. Taste - grapefruit and grapefruit pith. As it goes on its all pith. So bitter. Palate - light bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a long dry finish. Too dry for such a thin body. Overall - way too bitter for me.

Cask at the Euston Tap, 03/08/14. Murky orange amber with a moderate off white head that retains. Nose is earthy hops, mineral notes, bitter orange, straw. Taste comprises orange peel, straw, hint of red grapefruit, chalky mineral bite. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with light hop bitterness. Decent enough earthy hop number.
