Beer Of The Day - Hornbeam 'Bowing Out'

Todays Beer Of The Day is somewhat different to those I selected previously, but more of that shortly. It is a light, hoppy beer, at 4.8%. Nothing unusual there then. It is an excellent beer, with citrus notes, and a slightly flowery nose. There were further hints of hedgerows with nettles and spice in the background of the beer. It was complex and interesting.

I assumed when I drank it in the Bar Fringe, in Manchester's northern quarter yesterday that it's name 'Bowing Out' was a reference to the Brexit vote or the Football debacle, but I was wrong..... it is Hornbeam brewery's last ever beer.....and that got me thinking.
