Bottle, gift from my colleague from Glossop. Hazy golden color, small white head. Fruity aroma of pear, malt, toffee, some floral notes. Taste has malt, grass, citrus, hops - dry sweet with medium bitter hoppy finish and aftertaste. Light crispy body and average carbonation. Nice and refreshing fruity ale.

First try of Howard Town brewery despite being just 8 miles away! On Cask @ Old Hall Beer Festival, Chinley. Aroma fruit, hops and malts. Looked and felt a bit thin. Fruity flavour, nice dry finish.
