  1. Brian C.

    A lovely full bodied pale blonde ale . Enjoyed the 18 pint bag-in-a-box and would love to enjoy a hand pulled pint from the pump when we are allowed back in the pubs .

  2. Julie P.

    Very good typical beer festival ale. Need to order more

  3. Martin G.

    I’m not a real ale connoisseur so I can’t give you an in-depth review about ‘subtle notes’ or hoppy whatevers, but this was a fantastic beer. I’ve ordered 2 18 pint boxes so far and will undoubtedly order another. Praise indeed?

  4. Paul T.

    A nice easily drinkable beer.
    One to order again I think.

  5. Richard C.

    This is my second order of Hairy Helmet and find it to be a great refreshing beer.

    A good beer, what I expect a traditional lighter ale to taste like. Pretty certain there were only 15 pints in the bag though, which was a bit disappointing
