This beer was originally brewed as a seasonal beer for the summer that never really appeared in 2008! It proved to be extremely popular and went on to win the Somerset Beer of the Festival at the 2008 Somerset Camra Beer Festival in Minehead. Because of its popularity we have decided to add this beer to our regular range that are brewed all year round.
The beer is brewed from very lightly kilned Maris Otter malt with the addition of flaked maize and wheat malt. This gives a very light, straw coloured beer which is delicately hopped with German Perle hops making it a refreshing drink for a warm sunny day, or indeed any day of the year!

Cask at Lloyds yeovil. Aroma is pleasant but a slight Diacetyl is present, nice amount of citrus fruits and a little spice. Mouth feel started out well but wore thin through the course of the pint. Taste is a difficult one as I generally dont get on with pale beers that use different grains to barley with citrus notes - the taste gets confused. I like the character the wheat gives to a beer and I love a high citrus ale when the two combine......... It just doesnt do it for me and this is a classic case. Having said that it does taste like a decent, clean fermentation and generally tastes like a well brewed beer. Think my prejudice get in the way with this one.

Cimbasso (840) - - APR 19, 2014
As light and frothy as a Noël Coward musical. Light golden appearance with a good white head and a slightly hoppy aroma. Slightly over-carbonated and not a particularly memorable taste. A light pint, it would be very suitable for a summer lunchtime.
