Go with the Grain! An ale brewed with four malts: barley, wheat, rye and oat. Hopped with the Pioneer variety from England. A spicy, almost herbal aroma. Medium, moreish body. Hoppy taste with malt underpinnings and not-at-all grainy.

From cask (gravity) at the Bree Louise on 9 September 2014. Contrary to the assertion in the commercial description I did find this a bit grainy for my taste - lots of soft malts, tending towards bready. Modest bitterness. Mellow mouthfeel with a touch if lingering, residual sweetness. Easygoing, pleasant drinking but one half was enough for me. Not really my type of beer to be honest.

(Gravity cask at The Rake, Southwark, London, 21 April 2012) Golden amber colour with brief, white head. Fruity, malty nose with peaches, biscuits and tropical fruit. Malty, fruity taste with notes of citrus, apricots, biscuity malt and a slightly grassy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with balanced sweetness. Well balanced and quite nice.

BeerViking (4211) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2011
Pale amber with almost no head, honey and a little orange on the head plus something faintly floral and maybe heathery. An initially sweet mouthfeel with notes of honey and a hint of pepper, bread and vegetable very quickly turns bitter and drying, the astringent, slightly acrid and peppery, taste lasting on the palate.
