COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our fourth beer to be brewed is Henrietta - named after one of the Portland family. Henrietta is a light golden ale. She’s low in strength but absolutely crammed full of wonderful hop character. There’s a good bitter note from Challenger hops which balances the citrus and grassy nose from Willamette and Hallertaur Brewers Gold.

Idiosynkrasie (3228) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - DEC 22, 2013
500ml bottle. Clear golden colour with average, frothy, fluffy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Strawy and citrusy aroma, spicy hints of hay, lemon and lime notes. Taste is dry hoppy, minimally strawy, biscuity pale malty basis, fruity hints of lemon and lime; light body, slightly watery. Quaffable and refreshing.

BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2013
On the 3rd Oct 2013 my wife and I had 22 half-pints between us at the 35th Telford Beer Festival: this was one of those 22. Hand-pulled (on of 34 to choose from): pale golden body with a thin white head on our pour. The nose and taste were delicate and hoppy: herbal, floral and almost perfumed in nature. Nothing overpowering or strong to pontificate about, but a pleasant if unassuming brew.

rauchbier (3559) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2012
Bottle, from Doddington Hall farm shop (4.0%). Gold, thin but lasting white head and low condition. Pleasant but muted citrusy hop notes in the nose with some gentle sweet malt and a faint soapiness, more gentle hoppiness in the mouth, slightly sweet to give some balance. Finish is mostly hoppy with a hint of pepper.
