Cask; Special.
Adnams Flagship has been brewed exclusively to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar and to signal our admiration and respect for the great maritime tradition of England's East Coast. It's a seaworthy 4.3% ABV brew, with fragrant aromas of hops and spices and hints of banana. Look further and you'll pick up traces of pepper, dark fruits and caramelized orange. Available for a limited period from the end of May, across East Anglia and London only. But, don't despair if you live further afield - we plan to launch Flagship nationally later on in the year.

Cask @ The Pakenham Arms. Apparently this beer isn’t retired, unless the landlady of this pub is really into aging casks! The appearance is light chestnut color with a small white head. The nose is quite yeasty, a bit of light grains and white grapes. Not much aroma, to be honest. The taste is light summery strawberry fruit, some caramel, yeast. Light hay on the grassy dry finish. Light, easy drinking. Quite boring and lacking in the flavor department.

tombyars (1486) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - SEP 28, 2011
First tasted this at the Troon Beer Festival in October 2005. Hand pump dispense. Clear pale amber in colour with a thin white head. Slight sulphurous aroma and thin mouthfeel. Poor lacing. Pale malt gives digestive biscuit base with redcurrant fruit notes. hokp resins give a metallic tang to the aftertaste. Finish is dry and bitter sweet. An ok session bitter.

Sobchak (131) - Skagen, DENMARK - DEC 24, 2005
(Cask, The Wharf, Aalborg) - Light amber colour. Light nose, with some malty notes. The taste is pretty one-dimensional, with slightly malty and hoppy taste. -Nothing special....

fiulijn (16426) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 23, 2005
Cask at The Bridge House, London
Dark amber color. Light malt aroma. Some malt and caramel taste, correct bitterness, but also a touch of vegetables. Not particularly pleasant.

Nekronos (3742) - Xalapa, MEXICO - NOV 18, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2006 Well, this was a little like vinegar, but good, I mean, a little sour, but drinkable and enjoyable at all. Amber, with head.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2005
Cask conditioned at Charlies. Amber coloured. Ligh aroma with eggy notes. Sweet and slightly malty flavour. Thin and boring.

Ungstrup (30385) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2005
[Cask at Charlies Bar, Copenhagen] A hazy orange beer with an OK off-white head. The aroma is sweet and very fruity - and so is the flavor, and here the fruitiness reveals peaches, and leads to a slightly bitter dry finish.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - NOV 10, 2005
Cask @ Charlie’s Bar, Cph. Nose of bready malts with a light hoppy note. Copper colored body with a small white head. Some malts in the flavor with very light bitterness.
