Looking for a new taste at my local cardinals hat in Worcester and came across the best beer I've tried for ages. A lovely smooth golden ale with none of the after bitter taste that higher % beers can have. This is definitely going to be my beer for the foreseeable future and what's even better is there is a local stockist. Hooray!
