Elgood’s Warrior (5.5%)

You can really (and I mean really) taste the hops in this.
Not in a Punk/Cannonball/Crafty lychee and grapefruit way, but in a massive dose of English hops way.
Fuggles, Goldings and Challenger bring waves of peppery heat, all spice brashness and floral sweetness.
This is all tempered by a really decent, slightly fruity, digestive biscuit malting.
There’s a touch of harshness, but that may have come from not pouring this bottle conditioned beer very well (After three and a half hours on a train I was thirsty!)
The best Elgood beer I’ve tried so far.
