ForlornHope (240) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2015
Bottle conditioned at home. Orange-amber in colour with a small white head. Aroma is of sweet malt and spicy, pine hop. Sweet initial taste, with a good balance of bitterness and citrus hop. Solid, malt body with a little fruit and a long dry bitter finish. Lively carbonation. A good beer, I would have another.

Cask at Seven Stars, Bristol. Pours clear golden amber, no head save a few big bubbles. Flat. Caramel and light citrus aromas. Light sweet, light bitter. Not a lot going on to be honest. OK, but a bit thin.

Cask conditioned at Minehead Beer Fest ’13. Cloudy amber with no head. This had a saccharin type sweetness along with quite an amoretto biscuit type flavour. The sweetness lingers somewhat.

Bottled - Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the Westland Lynx, the local Yeovil brewery celebrates the newly introduced RAF and Army Air Corp, Augusta-Westland Lynx Wildcat at RNAS Yeovilton. After a rather hair raising opening with over a minute of overflowing froth, your instantly struck by the intense fruity aroma. A thick white frothy head, dark cloudy brown. Slightly sweet with a hint of the fruity taste. Quickly passing palate but that is appreciated. An excellent celebration of the Lynx and a beautiful ale.
