Cask. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruits, nectar, some floral notes along with rather sweet malts. Flavour is fruity, nectary, wooden and also has some mild toffeeish and bready notes. Rather balanced and nice for being only 3.5 % abv.

Cask at Peterborough Beer Fest. Pale straw colour. Strong aroma of grapefruit. Dryish and light bodied with soft mouthfeel. Salty resiny finish with good bitterness. At 3.5% and intense, fresh flavour it’s an excellent quencher.
