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.
