Served on cask at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham into an English half pot.

A little background, this beer is named after the great English actor Pete Postlethwaite, who died in January 2011.

Pete was born in Warrington, the town in which Coach House are based and the beer was brewed as a tribute.

Poured to a mid golden/amber colour with a small white head that held up fairly well through drinking.

A floral, hoppy, grassy aroma attacks the nose - good all round sense attack!

Quite a dry and hoppy beer, less flowery in taste than aroma but still a little floral flavour in there. Also a sweet and light malted flavour.

Mouthfeel is adequate, not full bodied, not thin - just right, dry and bitter in the aftertaste, perhaps more than the floral/hop aroma and taste would suggest

Overall - a decent tribute to a favourite actor of mine!
