COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised.
Golden colour, floral bouquet and light flavour of newly mowed hay.

Brewed with great care using only malted barley, hops, medium-soft water and a bottom-fermenting yeast; matured at low temperatures to bring out its delicate flavour and soft hop-character finish.

The cold maturation period allows the bottom-fermenting yeasts to secondary ferment and improve the lager’s flavour, purity and condition.

Draught@Wenlock Arms. Golden colour, not much head. Aroma is malts, some grassy and grainy noyes as well as mild wood. Flavour is malts, earth, some mild grains. Yet it is quite balanced and drinkable. Especially on a hot summerday
