Quantock Wills Neck

My second bottle courtesy of Somersets Quantock Brewery  was Wills Neck, a late hopped golden ale, bottle conditioned and 4.3% abv.

Its appearance was golden once poured, with little to no head really. With that comes a sharp malty taste, and little bits of orange, came over crisp and dry also. Finishes initially with a citrus bitterness, the late hopping i presume,  but as it went down the glass and warmed the sweet malt element was more noticeable. All of this was quite understated though, very light and gentle. This might be as once in the glass it had little carbonation which left the overall experience a little flat.
Never mind, a review of the Royal Stag to come soon, looking forward to that!

You can buy Quantock beers from local farmers markets, or from myBrewerytap, or West Country Ales.
Again, thank you to Rob from Quantock.
