These Herefordshire Cascade hops have helped us create Bosbury Best - an awesome bronze coloured ale with subtle biscuit, toffee and marmalade flavours, and an intense grassy, citrus aroma.

Let sødlig, let bitterhed. En lille smule tør i eftersmagen, har en god fylde i smagen også.

Bottle-conditioned at home. Pours with a good head. Amber with a slight haze. Subdued on the nose, but offering floral notes. Medium bodied, leaning towards a slightly maltier, sweeter bitter. Drying on the finish.

Bright clear amber beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is a little airy. Trace of creamy sweetness. Mild floral bitterness and a little citric peel, pretty mild. Smooth semi dry finish. Passable bitter.

500ml bottle: BBD 20 days away when opened on 31 Oct 2014. Poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard at home and shared with no one! Terracotta hue to the bronze/amber body, clear and clean looking with a soft pillow of white foam on top. I love live reviews with just me and the dog, we bond on evenings like this! Malt lead to the aroma and taste with a dark fruitiness below the surface. Semi-sweet molasses certainly rule the brew with the hops playing second fiddle throughout, in fact hardly being heard or sensed. My sweet tooth took to this beer straight away. Medium bodied and the carbonation suited the beer nicely.

This was a gift from the beer fairy, left on my desk at work with no note or explanation. (Later turned out to be Mike - thanks!) Colour of golden syrup, with a frothy white head. Light body and carbonation. Malt and hops combine to give a toffee apple flavour, followed by a nutty bitter finish. Good bitter - the beer fairy is welcome to come again!
