Nose
Honey-like maltiness with citrus hop notes emerging.
Palate
Crisp, bitter, hoppy and drying, with a smooth malt underbelly. Some tart lemon notes add a touch of sharpness.
Finish
Bitter, hoppy and dry.
Comment
A full-flavoured blonde ale named after a cannon that was used by Roundheads to destroy Goodrich Castle, near Monmouth, in the Civil War. The overall impression is that it's a touch too bitter and could use more of a malty balance. Once bottle conditioned at 5.7%, now a little weaker and filtered.
