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

macca147 (402) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 6, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 21, 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.

Cask:
Typical cask aroma with a lot of fruit undertones and a hint of berry and orange in there too. There is a light citrus backgroun aroma and touches of hops as well.
Medium, deep amber colour with a thumb sized, foamy white head that stays consistent throughout.
Creamy, fruity taste to begin with that is backed by a lot of bitterness and some lighter hops around the middle. There is some citrus malts as well and a hint of sweetness.
Medium to full bodied and fairly still, bordering on flat with very low carbonation and a lot of bitterness at the end.

A basic cask ale really, slightly flat but that is to be expected I guess. Pleasant enough but slowly becomes a bit of a struggle to finish towards the end.

Cask by handpump at Counting House, Glasgow - clear golden ale, medium off-white head, good temperature, quite thin body, caramel and citrus hop aroma, hint of spice in the aftertaste, moderate carbonation
