Ah, Hepworth of Horsham, one of several up and coming Sussex breweries. I’ve come across them at numerous farmers’ markets around the south east of England and so far reviewed the Hepworth Sussex traditional pale ale and the Hepworth Prospect, but now was the turn of the Pullman, and it’s by far my favourite Hepworth creation. Named after the famous railway carriage, I was expecting something a little more industrial, instead I got a refined and surprisingly refreshing beer.
This light amber-coloured golden is an absolute delight. It comes with a wheaty nose then surprises the drinker with a sharp, citrus taste. There’s a tangy orange undertone to what is a well-rounded and refreshing golden. Swill it around the mouth a while to fully appreciate the complex citrus flavours.
This is a delightful find. Well done Hepworth! It’s just a shame I lost my photo of it!
