Drunk at The Keeper’s Cottage, just outside of Cullompton, Devon, England in the Summer of 2007 – from notes.
The Keeper’s Cottage is a pub that I know very well. Growing up as a young drinker we would sometimes make the short trip out there for a couple of pints. To be honest, the place has seen better days and looks a little run down to me.
Weird looking beer! Yellow hammer is certainly appropraite as this almost looks a little like a Hefe without the huge head! Really, murky yellow pour with an amazing haze. I wanted give it a “Crazy” rather than a “4”. Perhaps this was near the end of the barrel?
Fruit flavors upfront with a little yeastiness and some strong, sweet malts. Hops are floral and the whole package comes together with a very organic feel about it. Grassy even.
Great thirst quencher on a hot summer lunchtime with a rustic cheese and Branston sandwich.
