COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & Bottled;
By sourcing the best English hops including the exceptional Cascade, recently produced for the first time by English growers and combining them with the finest malted barley, we’ve made a beer that is high in complex aromatics, with floral, cedar and citrus notes, and a long bittersweet finish.

Aroma is grassy for me the flavour is typical English Pale/Golden ale. Clean and refreshing but uninspiring. Small head and light carbonation. Decent. I’m impressed that local ingredients are used in this beer.

martinrumsam (541) - BARNSTAPLE, Devon, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2014
Bottle. Light golden Amber with white head that soon goes straw and light citrus aroma lightly sweet with a crisp modest bitterness in the finish. Quite watery too much carbonation. Forgettable

mkel07 (3666) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 21, 2014
Bottle from The Wine Emporium 210814. Murky light amber with a Soft white head. Fruity flavour almost like a golden ale. I expected a bit more seeing as River a Cottage put their name to it.

50cl bottle from Tesco, Camberley. A hazy pale amber pour with a thin white head; floral and citrus aroma; crisp flinty taste with some citrus fruit and a chalky body; and a lingering grassy bitterness to finish. Quite pleasant.

Clear golden beer with a thin head. Light and slightly sour hop aroma. Flavour is watery but the hop still comes through. Smells better than it tastes.

500ml bottle. Pours golden with a frothy head that just about lasted to the bottom of the glass. Grassy hints on the nose, but not much else. Taste is biscuit and slight citrus. Decent session beer
