COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned; Regular
An exceptionally pale beer, brewed using "green" hops - harvested hops which have not been dried in a kiln. These hops were pitched to the copper within an hour of picking. The two hop varieties used for this beer were Mathon Golding from Lulsley Court and First Gold from Tedney. Both farms are within half a mile of the brewery.

Fin (9457) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2015
Bottle picked up from Hay Wines, Ledbury, Herefordshire. Consumed at home Saturday 7th November 2015. Pours gold but it is a little hazy. When you drink an Orval, then Brussels Beer Project Babylone and also Sierra Nevada Torpedo followed by this, it has to be said that this is found wanting a little in the flavour department, it’s fine just a rather ordinary beer that is a little thin and lacking in flavour a little, I guess it may be regarded as subtle I think thin and watery with a limited malt and hop profile.

AirForceHops (6074) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Poured by gravity @ NERAX North cask festival. 11/16/2013 Haverhill, MA. Clear gold with lots of soapy head. Nose is corn and weak grassy hops. Ok, I’m confused here…. Where are the Green hops located?? The flavor is all grain, generic pale malt and yeast. Needless to say I was expecting much more. But it is just a Golden Ale I got worked up form the description and got nothing.
