Brewed in conjunction with Hardknott Brewery in Cumbria. I had just a third of a pint as part of the recent Wetherspoons festival. A light gold (not amber as billed) coloured beer with a standard 'soons head leaving some lacing. It had a very pleasant creamy cereal and herbal hop nose. After a an earthy, bscuity start I was expecting a big hop punch, but instead there was moderate bitterness and a dry finish. I don't see why a brewer would use eight different kinds of hops (wherever they come from) if he didn't intend to create a very hoppy beer. The result here is that the hop profile seems extremely generic.

Pint, cask conditioned.

A: Initial haze cleared, bronze colour, clear, one finger head, decent
retention, some lacing.

S: Initial citrus gave way
to strong diacetyl.

T: Zesty citrus, notes of earth
from the fuggles, didn’t over do the bitterness,
fairly subtle.

M: Smooth, light bodied, moderate
carbonation.

O: Billed as an ale with eight English
hops but didn’t seem overly hoppy. A solid pale
ale/bitter rather than a top class one.
