COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.
Our second beer is Knight of the Garter, launched on June 14th to coincide with the Ceremony of the Garter at Windsor Castle. It is a straw-coloured Golden Ale (3.8% ABV) easy summer drinking with a distinctive fresh citrus hop aroma. As with Guardsman, it is brewed with premium Maris Otter pale malt from a traditional floor sweeping. Again we are using whole leaf hops English Pilgrim in the copper and a blend in the hopback, including American Amarillo with their gorgeous orangey aroma.

HogTownHarry (6611) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, - AUG 23, 2011
August 12, 2011 - cask at The Harp (Chados Place). Bright clear refractive amber-tinged gold with a large, lasting and creamy off-white head. Intensely bitter floral aroma, some heather, very very light grain, no alcohol. Taste is, if anything, more one-dimensional - incredibly floral and bitter, not much else. Chewy mouthfeel, slightly light of body, decent cask carbonation, has a very long dry floral/grassy astringent finish.

UPDATED: MAY 6, 2017 Pours a slightly hazy straw gold colour with a small white head. Aroma is floral and fruity; orange citrus, some tropical notes and light malt. Crisp light sweet taste, caramel malt and citrus hop flavours. Moderate bitterness and dtyness in the finish. Okay.

FatPhil (15799) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 17, 2017
Draught (Tapping the Admiral, London) (6+:3+:7:4:14=3.4++)
Simple malty aroma, says "beer" to me - ahhh, thats me with a smile on my face. Utterly lovely malty taste, with perfectly balanced wooly bitterness - lovely, but quite mellow, tingly bitter long finish - lip-smackingly good. Massively drinkable. A great English beer, free of gimmicks. Thank you W&E, I knew you wouldnt let me down.

Cask pint in Penderels Oak, High Holborn on 3rd Aug 2016. Clean golden pour, white topping. Decent blend and not citrusy! Floral nose with a hint of caramel, taste had a slight hop lead with the caramel sweetness balancing the bitterness from the hops: nice session ale.

Nothing wrong with this session bitter from John MacEachin, dont feint. If Ive got to add more than that then the hopping was fine.
