Pixie Spring Bang Tidy Bitter
Cask, Victoria Inn, Colchester In excellent condition and at the top of the barrel. I ordered a pint. Lovely white lacing and copper/bronze appearance. Loads and loads of Sorachi Ace. Seriously well-hopped is this one! I am not normally a fan of Sorachi Ace but maybe the hop has changed or my pallet was bored of many English bitters which I had during the day but this was a definite highlight. Superb oily notes and pine and pilth. Loads of juicy pineapple and tropical fruits and raw onions. I drunk mine and enjoyed it, this is my favourite example of Sorachi Ace being used so far. Still shocked by how much I enjoyed it as I don’t normally like Sorachi.

Pixie Spring Golden Pixie
Gravity poured half-pint on 18th April 2015 at the Stourbridge CAMRA Beer Festival. Golden with a white head. Grapefruit notes in the nose and taste: yet another golden citrusy brew. Refreshing but so ’samey’ as hundreds out in the market currently.

Pixie Spring Bang Tidy Bitter
Cask. Rutland Arms, Sheffield. Hazy, dark gold. Blotchy, thick, lasting, bright white head. Earthy, and spicy, as you’d expect. Light citrus zest. Grainy, and a light yeastiness, too. Taste is punchy, spicy bitter. Moderate body. Palate cleansing hop bitterness. Finish is astringent bitter. Hoppy as you like. Very easy drinking.

Stern golden/light amber body with a decent cover of white then head. Bullish peach and apricot nose with edge of citrus underneath. Flourish of tight bitterness, juicy and sleek on the palate. Middle is more of the same, decent level of refreshment for the ABV. The main plus here is a resonating lemon bitterness on the linger, almost sparkling. SOLID.

Cask, Stockbridge Tap, Edinburgh

Pixie Spring Bang Tidy Bitter
The smallest shade lighter in Rusty orange from the non-bang version, similar film and ringed white head. Coppery almost Tetley nose, light sweet and earthy berries. Silkier mouthfeel, creamy in the middle. Cereal sweetness and a decent few sprigs of bitterness perk things up along the way, before smoother finish that the original. Light but soft copper twang finish. Not sickeningly dull as the other. <P>Cask, Stockbridge Tap, Edinburgh,
