A best bitter.
Very delicious best bitter, but somewhat different from the norm -- its distinctiveness lies in its fun fruity-hoppy finish. A beautiful golden colour immediately attracts the eye. Smooth, balanced, and perfect for warm summertime sessioning. Try it with good fish & chips, peanuts, or seafood.

3rd August 2012 saw me in ‘The Crown Inn’ Oakengates and having four hand-pulled pints of this fine brew.

Almost clear body of light amber/deep gold with a white, lasting head of bubbles.

Very floral nose: some malts in the aroma as well, but completely overshadowed by the floral hops. The taste is almost a reverse of the smell: the hops now playing second fiddle to the maltier content and only coming into their own as the mouth dries and a semi-bitterness arrives.

Medium bodied; and easy to drink (hence the four pints).
