Go with the Grain! An ale brewed with four malts: barley, wheat, rye and oat. Hopped with the Pioneer variety from England. A spicy, almost herbal aroma. Medium, moreish body. Hoppy taste with malt underpinnings and not-at-all grainy.

From cask (gravity) at the Bree Louise on 9 September 2014. Contrary to the assertion in the commercial description I did find this a bit grainy for my taste - lots of soft malts, tending towards bready. Modest bitterness. Mellow mouthfeel with a touch if lingering, residual sweetness. Easygoing, pleasant drinking but one half was enough for me. Not really my type of beer to be honest.

Cask at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green, 15/11/13. Lightly hazed golden with a good sized off white head that retains wells, excellent full glass lacing follows. Nose is light bread dough, straw, grain, orchard fruit, touch of malt. Taste comprises orchard fruit, bready malt, light caramel, biscuit. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, smooth on the palate, light bitter notes in the finish. Ok offering.

Malty, fruity taste with notes of citrus, apricots, biscuity malt and a slightly grassy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with balanced sweetness. Well balanced and quite nice.

BeerViking (4796) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2011
Pale amber with almost no head, honey and a little orange on the head plus something faintly floral and maybe heathery. An initially sweet mouthfeel with notes of honey and a hint of pepper, bread and vegetable very quickly turns bitter and drying, the astringent, slightly acrid and peppery, taste lasting on the palate.

3.2
OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 26, 2011
Half, from cask (gravity)@The Rake, London. Thin blond top. Clear deep brownish golden body. Discreet aroma of soft grainy malts, some apple-fruitiness and peaches. Taste is soft and clean. Medium malt body, slight spicy and peppery. Earthy bittering hops for balancing. Slick texture. Fruity endnotes. Drinks good.

3.9
Pyobon (1403) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 18, 2009
Draught (in June 08). Amber. Some hop aroma. Light body and carbonation. Taste of grains, especially, with some fruitiness (apples) and hops.
