COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled & Cask - Regular.;
Classic strong pale ale with a light gold appearance with a creamy white head which remains throughout the drink. Complex hoppy aroma due to lots of Styrian hops. Delicate fruity malt taste and low in carbonation makes this beer hugely drinkable and sessionable whilst standing out from the crowd.

gegwilson (1939) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2015
Cask in the Royal Hotel, Runswick Bay. Pours amber with an off white head. Biscuity malt flavour with light citrus. Not sure how this could ever be called an IPA. More a standard bitter.

Hippoman (75) - Durham, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2015
Cask at The Old George, Newcastle, £2.85/pint. Medium brown colour with light bitter aroma. Hits of carbonation with diminishing head. Slightly earthy, well rounded, nicely hopped so bitter without astringency. Definitely sessionable and a very decent pint.
