COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.

A blond style that uses Cascade and a late addition of Centennial hops to give a really easy drinking, refreshing session ale.
Fall under the spell of the White Witch. Originally a seasonal ale, she sold out so fast she earned a permanent residency in Moorhouses repertoire. The hops used give a big hit of lemon, citrus and spice on the aroma balanced with a smooth malt taste and a lingering bitterness.
Release: 2012

Cask (handpump) at the Piccadilly Tavern, Manchester on 18 January 2017. Rather sparse notes as I was convinced Id rated this before. Very pale gold colour, tending towards straw. Good, lively condition. Light and easy drinking with a pronounced citric smack. Mellow mouthfeel. A decent quaffer.

eastkenttom (126) - herne bay, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2016
Bottle. Very thin tasting, not a lot going on and perhaps too fizzy. Slightly tangy but it doesnt really go anywhere. Not a fan, which is a shame because I was looking forward to trying this for a while, due to the rather intriguing label of a with stroking a cat. Might be a good food beer i guess. 6 out of 10.
