COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
A very clean flaxen-coloured beer with wonderful thirst-quenching properties. The subtle blend of aroma and bittering hops give a crispness on the tongue which is delicately fruity, giving way to some dryness. The inclusion of some flaked maize in the grist subtly hints at crisp corn flavours.
Ingredients: Optic malt, flaked maize, wheat malt. East Kent Goldings, Pioneer and Tettnang hops, coriander.

Lonick (1774) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 23, 2016
Cask @Cloisters, Edinburgh. Pours golden thick-ish white head. Nose is slight hops some biscuit unfortunately big soap. Taste is virtually all soap. I remember this first up as a dark beer many years ago and then the change to a golden beer. If this is the normal beer from Hopback its a real pity.

Sjohnh (810) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2016
Colour of pale lager, with a decent white head and even a bit of lacing. Body is light enough to be refreshing without being watery. Citrus hops evident in the nose and these lead the way in the taste too. Bit more malt would be nice.
