Cask, Regular;
Our flagship pale session beer for 2011, pale golden almost blonde in colour, Zenith is packed with zingy Centennial hops which give a citrus bite & flavours of lime all set against a pale malt backdrop. Low in abv but big in the flavour stakes & all set off with a massive dry hop aroma, this beer ups the stakes in the pale & sessionable market.

The_Osprey (2843) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2015
Cask at Draft House. Yellow, a little hazy, still, big bubbly white head, thick lacing doesn’t stick. Aroma is lemon pie, sherbet dibdab, flowers, some card. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is lemon drizzle cake, straw, tangy with a light astringency, flowery hoppy linger. Solid sessionable stuff. The most popular beer on tonight with good reason.

BlackHaddock (4593) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2014
Half-pint, cask: Old Fighting Cocks, Oakengates on 29th June 2014. Clear light golden pour with a white head. Mild citrus notes in the hoppy aroma and taste; this lessens the sweet maltiness flavour in the mouth and helps to balance the beer nicely. Pleasant and easy drinking brew, medium bodied with a semi-dry finish.
