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.

Cask at the Royal Standard, Beaconsfield. Very refreshing blonde beer with good flavour, unusual for this style of beer. Quite a bitter taste but nowhere near an IPA.

A good beer from a good brewer. Not too strong on the hops (it’s not an IPA) but a notable orangey taste from the amarillo. Well done.

maxwelldeux (3539) - Everett, Washington, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Bottle. Pours a very clear golden amber color with no head. Nose is interesting, with a little bit of fruit in there and just a touch of citrus. Taste has a bit of a sour bite to it, with just a hint at some sweetness at the end. Drinkable.

Osprey87 (1578) - WALES - AUG 11, 2013
Draught central London. Silly expensive for a fairly run of the mill beer. Clear yellow with scummy head. Smell is slightly fruity, but not much going on. Taste is initially a little bacon and ash, citrus and mild bitterness creep up on the back of the tongue. Very mild, nicely balanced. Some butter and sharpness in the aftertaste. Disappeared very quickly, and was enjoyable.
