This golden-straw coloured offering from Oxfordshire follows in the footsteps of Wychwood’s ruby Hobgoblin Ale, albeit in a lighter fashion.

Floral and lemon hops (Pilgrim, Nelson Sauvin, Citra, and Summit) on the nose with a hint of orange zest.

The wheat balances out the barley maltiness to add to the light mouthfeel, with citrus edges on the tongue.

A crisp and balanced finish.

Great for summer days and lighter fare such as fish and chips, though skewing to the more expensive side.

Hoochsavvy Grade: B+
