This beer was brewed in tribute to the late Giles Whitfield, a good friend and CAMRA volunteer who was a fan of golden ales, movies and traveling by train. Refreshing citrusy lemon and grapefruit flavours dominate initially, giving way to a bitter aftertaste.
The Titfield Thunderbolt was an Ealing comedy released in 1953, about a village trying to keep their railway line open. The train featured as “Thunderbolt” in the film was played by LMR 57 “Lion”, one of the earliest British locomotives. The artwork was created by local artist Jonathan Stanley and produced from a lithographic print featuring the copper clad Lion in its new role as the “Citrabolt”.
