Hopback Summer Lightning

Hopback Summer Lightning (5% ABV)
Drunk at the White Lion, Wherwell, Hants, UK

I saved this beer for last during our visit, given that it was the strongest beer on tap and I had been "warned" that it was a very popular and fine pint. Consequently, I have failed to make sensible notes (it was a long day!), but I can report it smelled hoppy and inviting, with a slight fluffy head and clear greenish-amber body.

It had definitely more punch than the other beers I tried that day, though not quite as hoppy as I was expecting. Very refreshing. I wish I had had this one first to be honest, as I would probably have ordered this beer more than once. Ah, the perils of dessert.

Refreshing, hoppy and crisp. Make sure you don't chill it as sometimes is suggested; definitely one for room temperature.
