Cask (gravity dispense) at Pigs Ear Beer Festival, 1 December 2009. Clear gold, loose white head. Grassy and floral notes on the nose but hardly a hop explosion. Hops come through much more strongly on the palate. Distinctly bitter flavour. Developing grapefruit flavour, leading in to a lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. Ended up a lot more hoppy than the initial impression suggested. Good stuff.

Prescotti and Dave go apeshit on hops making this one helluva delicious morsel of ale. Cereal like maltiness marries well with the floral, grassiness of Englander Cascade hops. I could drink gallons of this. Well done scoopies. Keep ’em coming!
