COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Seasonal - July to September.
We have named this beer after a place that people know little about, it is across from the White Horse and is marked by the large ripples along the hill side where it is said the Giant once climbed to get to the White Horse.
The beer is strong like the Giant and its rich amber colour is derived from the Vienna and chocolate malts. We then hop with English fuggles which combine with the malts to leave you with a fruity fresh after taste and a pleasant dry finish. Enjoy

HogTownHarry (7287) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - FEB 11, 2018
September 17, 2017 - at Wetherspoons (Victoria Station) - handpull cask. Hazy amber-gold, no head. Bog-standard semi-sweet slightly twiggy bitter with some unpleasant but not nasty overtones (a generous 6-). Taste is grainy and sharp, with a weird mineral/sulphur thing ... infected? I will assume it's the water. Still, sticky, somewhat harsh in the taste and linger - not horrible but not very good at all.

Towey1989 (3525) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2017
Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A clear deep golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of butterscotch, some toasted grain, a hint of citrus and subtle sulphur. Taste of butterscotch, some toasted grain, slight caramel, a little grass, a hint of fruit and subtle sulphur. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dryish, sulphuric, butterscotch bitterness in the finish. An plod school, golden bitter. Few off flavours biit not offputting.

Cask a the company inn. Pours golden with white foam top. Aroma has herbs, leaves, resinous, qualities . Taste is medium sweet to sour. Palate is medium bodied with sticky feel soft carbonation and a sour coating to the tongue. If this is what you look for in a beer it's widely available.

macca147 (829) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 6, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2017 On tap at The University Club, Oxford. Pours a clear and thin orange gold with a thin white head. Aroma: Very mild malt and pine notes. Has a funky unpleasant smell, like a cheap lager. Taste: Sweet malt, caramel, citrus, peach flavours. Unusually sweet for an IPA. Medium body. Low carbonation, a bit too flat if anything. A pleasant flavour balance at first, but I couldn't drink a second of this. A bit unbalanced.
