COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A version of Worcestershire Sourced dry-hopped with UK Cascades especially for Pig’s Ear beer festival. The base beer is made with the only Cascades grown in Worcestershire which are in extremely limited supply. A whopping 7.2kg of hops went into this brew plus the dry-hops; enjoy, hop-heads!

Cask gravity at Pig’s Ear BF 09. Some hop on aroma. Hoppy on finish. Fullish in mouth, decent citrus hops and flavour soe orange fruits. Grew on me. Decent and well made.

Pigs Ear! Clear gold beer. Fresh hoppy nose. Zero carbonation. Fresh grassy grapefruit. Dry finish. Very nice beer apart from lack of carbonation.

Cask Handpump at the Harlequin, Sheffield 19/12/2009 Hoppy aroma. Clear golden coloured hoppy and fruity with a little bitterness in a lasting malt finish.

Cask (gravity dispense) at Pigs Ear Beer Festival, 1 December 2009. Clear gold, loose white head. Grassy and floral notes on the nose but hardly a hop explosion. Hops come through much more strongly on the palate. Distinctly bitter flavour. Developing grapefruit flavour, leading in to a lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. Ended up a lot more hoppy than the initial impression suggested. Good stuff.

Prescotti and Dave go apeshit on hops making this one helluva delicious morsel of ale. Cereal like maltiness marries well with the floral, grassiness of Englander Cascade hops. I could drink gallons of this. Well done scoopies. Keep ’em coming!
