If Maris Otter malt is the body of our beer then hops are its spirit. Each year we choose our hops not just by farm but by individual garden and time of harvest. One older variety, Challenger, and one new,Boadicea,used as unprocessed whole leaf hops. Extravagant, perhaps, but delicious.

Bottle at home. Pours clear amber with a medium, fizzy white head, medium-short retention with good lacing. Aroma is bread and biscuit malt, light dates and soft caramel notes with woody hops. Flavor is malt dominant, medium-light hops and bitterness, soft dark fruit notes and a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

Erasmus_ro (1693) - Alabama, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Tap @ Storyville, Helsinki. Pours a fairly amber with a small, off-white head. Aroma is quite fruity, some bready caramel. Taste is surprisingly fruity. Caramelly bitter-flavors are there. A bit of butter on the aroma, but quite fruity. Decent palate.

Karol (684) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 11, 2013
Bottled. Bought at Presporska Pivoteka in Bratislava/Slovakia. This bottled bitter is excellent! Bitter, hoppy a bit, refreshing. Due to 4% abv this is a great summer beer! The finish is pleasantly bitter. The arome of floral freshness unfolds when the glass is half full. I think this bottled bitter is excellent!
