Lavender Hill is a beer inspired by the local lavender fields which grew in Battersea. We have taken a Lavender Honey to brew with a selection of British and French hops to create this delightful honey beer.

Cask conditioned handpump Harp London 05/07/13. A golden coloured beer with a bright white head. This is pretty dull really, Got a Greene King yeasty tea note to it. Lacking inspiration, Only OK.

Cask (Draft House Westbridge, Clapham)
Light floral aroma. Nice pale orange, small loose head. Nice honey in the taste. A light palate, decent drinkability. More of a traditional honey-ey malty bitter than most previous Sambrooks, but a lot of the Sambrooks have been from the Bree Louise, which had massively spooned them. Finish gently sweet and malty. Nice bitter.

Cask at the King and Castle, Tourist Town Zentrum, 27/08/15. Pale golden blonde with a moderately appointed off white covering. Nose is pale malt, light bread, faint citric leanings. Taste comprises straw, lemon rind, soft bread, light floral notes. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a whisper of bitterness. So so Golde.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2015 From cask (handpump) at the Bree Louise on 9 September 2014. Pale gold. Quite lemony. Clean on the palate. Decent, straightforward quaffing blond but didn’t leave much of an impression.

Cask (handpump) at the Northcote, Battersea on 28 August 2015. Clean lemony quaffer. Same score as previously.

The_Osprey (4236) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2014

Sep 2014 - Cask at the Bolingbroke. Orange, very slight haze, still, small foamy white head, light lacing. Aroma has strong malty notes, yeasty bread, spice. Body is medium, totally smooth, almost no carbonation. Taste has light lemon with a meaty, semisweet malt character. Undercooked pasta. Musty finish. Weird lemon chicken vibe. Too drying. Below average. (2.8)

Sep 2014 - Cask at the Bree Louise. Pale yellow / orange, clear. Body is medium, smooth. Taste is light, malty. Very plain but drinkable. (3.0)
