COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Julius is a citrus-inspired Summer Ale, full of Thornbridge grown herbs including Tahitian Lime Leaves, Lemon Balm, Lemongrass, Mint and Coriander seeds. Light and lemony on the nose with a hint of spice and honey. Biscuit characters dominate the mouth, with a hint of ginger and a soft mouthfeel. The finish is lightly bitter, a little dry and wonderfully thirst quenching.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2009
Cask in the market porter. Alround rating: Soft spicing and herbal character, some sage lightly grassy, the mouthfeel would suggest theres some wheat in here, honey pale malt sweetness. Balanced and interestingly tasty stuff.
