One of my favorite country cask ales. Citrus, bread, spice, but not overly sweet. Creamy on the palate. Malty and bitter aftertaste.

Really nice golden ale. Refreshing and citrus-y. Would drink again. A bit above Butcombe if there’s a choice.

Cask conditioned at The Raven, Bath. Amber with white head. Really hoppy and dry, a very decent session type bitter with a full malt note. Really good and refreshing, very enjoyable.

8+ glorious aroma, variously waves of tobacco, uk bitter hop, and ginger, and even occasionally some honey
3 mid orange, small ring head.
8 just a perfect sweet honeyish bitter, hard to say what’s so great but it just has perfect balance. that and I’m a sucker for ginger, and english hops.
4 smooth palate, some honey and gingr retronasals, but loads of fresh noble brittish hops.
16 This is almost perfect as a session bitter. Not big in any way, but basically being a gold standard for balance.

Bottle. Golden and poured with a golden head. Crisp and slightly bitter.Some hops and left no lacing. Medium body and low carbonation. Pleasant.

[Bottle conditioned, Dad shared with me - cheers!] Gold-amber, slight white head, very heavy sedimentation might put some off. Appears very fizzy in the glass, but in the mouth carbonation is spot on. Aroma of flowers and citrus; in the mouth it’s bursting with juicy fruits; orange, peach and sweet pink grapefruit. Refreshing yet at the same time rich and satisfying. Lovely beer.

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2008 I have tried Potholer in various places since it was first brewed. My experiences have always been good ones. I have found it to be consistent and well balanced some good brewing ideas floating around in there and luckily for us in Somerset, yet another new brewery who aren’t afraid of aromatic hops. This last tasting was June 08 and the cask was matured (almost unintentionally) until close to it’s best before date. A wonderful amount of carbonation followed and - as expected - the driest Potholer I have tasted. For the first two days of it being on there were huge citrus aromatics, English hop aromatics which don’t muddle with yeasty fruitiness as much and some diacetyl. A more streamlined attempt than say, Tribute? It didn’t drop fully bright - who cares - but still had a radiant golden hue with a hint of orange. Biscuity, juicy malt (I feel so close to Protzy with those words) and citrus hops flowed through the palate with a waterfall like refreshing carbonation. Finishes dry, bitter and decidedly moreish. A good beer from Somerset. We’re getting there.

A golden yellow coloured beer with a thick white head. A light, zesty, fruity hop aroma. Dry mouthfeel. The zesty hop element comes through to the taste, pithy grapefruit and orange is followed by a smooth malty flavour that balances the taste out through to the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
