Stephen HarrisGood13 Sep 2012 I spoke to Jo from Sambrook’s who clarified that the ‘lavender’ ingredient in this beer is from lavender honey and that lavender flowers are not used themselves. This example a little too warm from the stillage and this seemed to emphasise the sweetness from the honey.

Martin the MildmanGood04 Sep 2012 Amber bitter with a citrus orange hop flavour which gives quite a bitterness to the beer. There is some malt for balance. My score 15/20.

Stephen HarrisExcellent08 Jul 2012 Honey beers don’t always grab me, but I really liked this one. The light honey dose mixed with an orangey hop variety from France go well together on a biscuit malt background.
