Silver Medal winner at the GBBF 2003.
Full Circle lends itself well to a bottle-conditioned version with its distinctively hoppy flavour and which we hope will be appealing to discerning drinkers everywhere.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2013 I had this beer in a steam train, and maybe the ambience did improve my appreciation about it. But the truth is that it is a very enjoyable beer, specially on a rainy day.

maeib (8611) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2012
Bottled 23/06/12. A golden orange coloured beer with a white head. Biscuity malts and citrussy fruits throughout. Well balanced and tasty. A bit of husky barley in the mouth and a touch of sweetness. Rather nice.

wheresthepath (1524) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2010
[500ml bottle - gift from the in-laws - cheers!] Pale amber with a moderate white head and a slight fizz. Tempting sweet and and spicy aroma, with loads of wheat chaff. The aroma continues into the flavour, the orangey sweetness lending an almost syrupy mouthfeel whilst the gingery spice combined with the fizz leaves your tongue tingling. It’s all offset with a decent bitterness with the classic English hop flavours of earth and farmyards. Mellow and relaxing, yet refreshing at the same time.- a great beer, and a pleasant surprise from a brewery I’m not normally that keen on.

Cask at the Bricklayers Arms, Putney, 17th Feb 2009. Golden amber with little head. Standard weight. Dry, quite hoppy. Not much aroma. Run of the mill.

harrisoni (13280) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2008
Cask gravity at SIBA BF, Paddock Wood. Gold. Slight tea flavour. It’s alright, nothing special, some harsh citrus. Some grassy hop. Bit dull.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2008
A Mes rate: cask at the Hop Farm festival.
Bright gold with no head. Lovely delicate sweetness in the aroma with some faint sherbety hoppage and some big floral notes. The flavour is a little basic and possibly a little too sweet but the hop flavours are excellent. It’s just crying out for some bittering hops that would add some needed dryness and probably make it really good. Tasty stuff all the same.

bman1986 (173) - Broadstairs, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2008
Cask at SIBA beer festival, Kent: Very light hoppy ale. Quite fruity with plenty of malt in there too. I really quite liked this.

Cask in the markey porter. Aroma is sweet toffee and fruity yeastyness, no hops. Taste is similar, too sweet and unbalanced, not really
