Cask (handpull) Derby summer BF 2008. The latest in their summer brewing competition (quickest selliing beer will win), this is the contribution from Head Brewer Stef. Two and a half pounds of hops in each barrel (including Amarillo , Chinook and Willamette) ought to give a hop blast..... well, it looks good and gold, slighly itching nose, certainly a superb array of hoppiness without being wincing. I’d rather have a shock of single hop but hey ho. More Hop Surprise than Shock but still a fresh, biting Thornbridge beer.

Cask at Derby Festival ’08. Gold with a small white head. Slightly buttery aroma. Then comes a hint of sweetness followed by the eponymous blast of hoppiness. Very good.
