COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.
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.

Sigmund (5466) - Tau, NORWAY - JAN 23, 2015
500 ml bottle, from Oddbins Chiswick. ABV is 3.8%. BB date 29. April 2014. Golden colour, nearly clear. Low white head. Lovely citrussy aroma, no unfresh notes. The flavour has also distinct citrussy hops throughout, with a firm bitterness in the finish. Decent malts too, and the mouthfeel is very good for a 3.8% beer.
