Guest Beer – Moonlight

IMG_0897Seems like there ought to be an interesting story behind Arkell’s Moonlight, which depicts a Westland Lysander on night ops, on the pump handle.

Arkell’s Beers gives a clue, which – as well as describing this 5.0% ABV beer as “Brewed using a blend of malts, English Fuggles and Susan hops to give a golden colour, lingering taste and toasty aroma” – also tells us that Peter Arkell, OBE flew moonlit sorties in a Lysander, over France, in 1943.

Cheers, sir!
