A bottle conditioned ale released to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the British Hedgehog Preservation Society, a Shropshire based charity founded in 1982 by Major Adrian Coles MBE. Sadly, despite the charity’s work, numbers of the prickly mammals in Britain have fallen by 25% over the past decade

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 25/07/2012

Appearance

(05-Jun-13) Cloudy, coppery amber with thin half finger head which quickly fades to little more than a ring of foam.

Aroma

Subdued, freshly baked white baguette crust malty aroma with faint floral hops.

Taste

Classic, refreshing, sessionable British ale with just enough floral hops to give the mildly malty palate a lightly bitter pine-ey bite. However, some will consider bland.

Aftertaste

Pleasant lightly hoped maltyness.
