COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised.
Ingredients: Barley malt; organic hops; nettles.
Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall of River Cottage and Hall & Woodhouse worked together to create Stinger.
"Slightly spicy with a light bitterness and a subtle tingle that comes from the nettles. Equally good with summer barbecues and winter roasts or while sitting on a hay bale watching the sun go down".

Sour nose leads to a sour flavour with a puckering mouthfeel. Some spice in the finish from the nettles. As with so many vegies, this one seems to be a lot more gimmick than true benefit.

Fin (7265) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2006
Bottle picked up at the Hall and Woodhouse brewery 19-06-06. I quite enjoyed this beer which poured a warm golden colour, but I found it a little safe, bit too sweet and unexciting.
