BlackHaddock (4863) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2012
3rd August 2012 saw me in ‘The Crown Inn’ Oakengates and having four hand-pulled pints of this fine brew. Almost clear body of light amber/deep gold with a white, lasting head of bubbles. Very floral nose: some malts in the aroma as well, but completely overshadowed by the floral hops. The taste is almost a reverse of the smell: the hops now playing second fiddle to the maltier content and only coming into their own as the mouth dries and a semi-bitterness arrives. Medium bodied; and easy to drink (hence the four pints).

Sweet honey aroma. Very malted barley oriented. Touch of wooliness in the mouth, but mostly sweet malts. Dry late finish is good. Honey keeps popping up.

superflyguy (429) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2011
crisp and clean. poured a clear wheat yellow, almost largery. head was firm and white until the final mouthful. slight aroma of hops, but no a more general sense of crisp cleanness! quite thin in the mouth but the carbonation was nice. the bitter was slightly too aggrasive for me, but nevertheless a very good beer. cask. Prince of Wales, Criccieth
