COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The beer is a ‘This is England’ ale, at a sessionable 4.5% it is made up of only English Hops (First Gold, Brambling Cross and Whitbread Golding) and all English Malts, and is a great showcase for English fruity hops at their best, its complemented by a slight sweetness but carries a long, dry bitter finish.

Cask conditioned handpump Craft Beer Co N1 London 17/12/12. A golden beer with a white head and lace. On the sweet side. A bit of a flowery feel. Dry, malty and ordinary really. It’s passable but not sure of the intention.

harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2012
Cask handpull at The Craft London. clear gold thin white head. Slightly farty aroma ol ale in mouth some juiciness on finish. Ok.

Scopey (14736) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2012
Cask at Craft Beer Co. It pours clear amber with a small white head. The nose is buttered toast, grain, dough, hay, spice and grass. The taste is butter, grain, straw, bitter grass, sweet malt, pithy lemon and dough with a dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. A below average offering from Thornridge. Butter notes are a proper turn-off.

jackl (8071) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 10, 2012
Cask @ Port Street Beer House. The pour’s deep gold with a small white head. The nose is buttered (!) popcorn, light apricot, white bread and grass. Definite diacetyl. The taste is mild peach syrup, white bread, some herbal hop and general pale malt. Light country meadow. Light body, obviously not on great form. Overall, this clearly isn’t drinking like it should. Still, it felt a little light weight. Hopefully I’ll get to try this again and revise my thoughts.

Leighton (21258) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2012
Cask at Craft Beer Co. - Islington, London. Pours clear yellow with a wimpy, white foam head. Light sweet character with faint lemon and stram. Some dry dough and biscuits. Light in body with soft carbonation. Finishes with some more doughy, lightly biscuity malts, vague citrus and straw. Pretty average at best, and the condition seems a bit lacking.

Craft Islington. Clear bright amber beer, suddy white head. Light palate, semi dry and low carbonation. Mild orangey hops with mellow bitterness. Finishes semi dry. Fresh but ultimately a bit so so.
