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.

Svesse (6716) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 23, 2010
(Cask at The Rake, Southwark, London, 7 Aug 2010) Pale golden colour with no head. Fruity nose with notes of citrus, grass and fresh hops. Fruity, hoppy taste with citrus (mainly lemon), grass and spicy hints of wheat. Medium body, fairly dry with a generous citrussy bitterness. Hoppier and tastier than most witbiers. Welsh witbier perhaps? Quite nice and tasty actually.

Cask (gravity dispense) at Mason & Taylor Hip Hop festival on 22 April 2011. Pale gold. Quite sharp, fruity, citric hops. Clean palate. Fresh, but quite light, mouthfeel. Was convinced I had reviewed this before so only made brief notes. Consequently flagged for re-rate.
