COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.
NOTE: Different hops and grain bill to the original Honey Cat.
A golden coloured ale, combining the full flavour of English pale and crystal malts with Norfolk honey, giving a sweetish, yet full-flavoured ale. The spicy notes of Atlas hops combine well with the honey to give a smooth finish, with a notable, hoppy bite.
