Ruffled Feathers at 3.8% is a bright, crisp ale brewed with Herefordshire Cascade hops.  There are hints of tropical fruit on the aroma and a clean, crisp hop flavour that lingers.  Carared malt lends the merest glimmer of red to the amber coloured liquid. In simple terms, it’s a classic bitter.

The Cascade hops are grown at Townend Farm in Bosbury by Mark and Lesley Andrews from whom we also source the Olicana in our Seven Swans and hops such as Jester and Challenger in Green Swan.  Originally a US grown hop, the Herefordshire Cascade has proved a winner in our ales.
