The inspiration for this beer comes from a Bohemian black lager that we’ve been enjoying lately. We couldn’t make a lager though as we weren’t prepared to wait that long! Instead we’ve created a very deep dark red beer and added a load of Hallertauer Hersbrucker hops for that distinctive lager like taste. Nothing much like the black lager we’ve been enjoying but just as good in its own right.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask conditioned at the brewery tap, the Old Tavern Bristol 24/11/07. This was another Arbor beer that was very hard to categorise. Near black with a slight tan head. The aroma was predominantly roasty with some dark chocolate. The flavour was also dominated by roasted malt with some dark fruit and a vaguely dry finish. Not bad.
