Our second beer is Knight of the Garter, launched on June 14th to coincide with the Ceremony of the Garter at Windsor Castle. It is a straw-coloured Golden Ale (3.8% ABV) easy summer drinking with a distinctive fresh citrus hop aroma. As with Guardsman, it is brewed with premium Maris Otter pale malt from a traditional floor sweeping. Again we are using whole leaf hops – English Pilgrim in the copper and a blend in the hopback, including American Amarillo with their gorgeous orangey aroma.

Cask pint in Penderels Oak, High Holborn on 3rd Aug 2016. Clean golden pour, white topping. Decent blend and not citrusy! Floral nose with a hint of caramel, taste had a slight hop lead with the caramel sweetness balancing the bitterness from the hops: nice session ale.

Nothing wrong with this session bitter from John MacEachin, don’t feint. If I’ve got to add more than that then the hopping was fine.
