Strong and well hopped for the voyage sending IPA from the Wolds to the World. Interestingly brewed with a pale Wold grown malt base, a triple hop blend and Maize for the head retention. Such triple hopped beers need hot full flavoured foods to accompany them!

Bright clear pale gold beer with a small white head. Light crisp palate, semi dry with fine carbonation. Clean pale malt, a little dry. Hops are light but very pleasing in their lime - lemon character. There is a nice touch of piney sweetness as well. Finishes semi dry and medium bitter. Sank this in no time!

500ml bottle from Sainsburys Ashford. Clear gold with lasting white head. Citrus hoppy aroma. Bit thin in mouth. Some good hops on the finish. Bit harsh on the finish. To be honest I now need to go to bed. Will re-rate this. A bit thin in terms of body. Good bitterness on finish. ok hoppiness.

Koelschtrinker (12658) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 7, 2014
Süffiger blumiger Hopfenantrunk, wenig bitter. Im Mittelteil noch etwas hopfiger, dabei bleibt das Bier süffig, etwas herb und bis in den Nachgeschmack hinein nicht bitter. Süßlicher, hell malziger Abgang. Gut! 11/12/11/12/8/12

Bottled, 500ml from Sainsbury’s in Banbury. Gold with white head. Quite a dry, floral bitter, there is a decent malty body, some husk, grainy, carrying a flowery hop note. Reasonable depth and palate. Decent enough.
