Cask @ Alehouse. Gold, slight haze, tight head. Easy drinking, fruity hoppy aroma, malt, almost biscuit backbone. Would be happy to spend a night on this, and at the strength wouldn’t suffer too much the next day...

brightonbeerblog (1) - Brighton, East Sussex, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2017 does not count
We tried this at the Foundry Brighton after it had just re-opened. English Garden is a bitter pale which had an enticing a earthy, hoppy, citrus aroma but unfortunately lacked bold flavour and bitterness . A refreshing if weak, light golden 3.8% session ale yes, but with myriad options for flavourful, well rounded and moreish pale ales out there it’s a shame the Foundry are stocking this one.
