Bottle. Golden and clear with a medium head. Bitter with some citrus presence. Medium body with a dominant bitter flavour. Perhaps a bit too bitter for my taste. Never the less another reasonable beer from this brewery.

500ml bottle from Ludlow Food Festival. Has a lovely fluffy white head. Taste is basically a massive slanging match between bitter hops and fruity malts, with bitterness taking a narrow lead towards the end. Very nice indeed.
