Floral Golden Ale
A summery, sparkling golden ale brewed with 4 hop varieties to give a complex, flowery aroma and a satisfying finish.
Dursley Steam Bitter was first brewed in 2007 to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Dursley Donkey, the branch line which once served the villages of Dursley, Cam and Coaley. It quickly became a firm favourite with punters and weve brewed it on a regular basis ever since.

Ungstrup (36498) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2011
Cask at Stortford Beer Festival 2011. An amber beer with a bubbly yellowish head. The aroma has notes of fruit, malt, caramel, and hops. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of fruit on a malty background, leading to a dry and bitter finish. I find it a bit boring.
