COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Seasonal - February & March.

Named to embody the spirit and passion of the Welsh Nation, Bread of Heaven is handcrafted to celebrate Brains’ sponsorship of the Welsh National Rugby Team and is the official ale of the 2005 and 2008 Grand Slam.
Its rugby ball-shaped logo features the WRU Official Ale logo and the words ‘Bread of Heaven’ and ‘feed me till I want no more’ from the famous Welsh hymn, ‘Guide Me O Thou Great Redeemer’.
A traditional cask ale with a distinctive reddish hue and a rich hop aroma, finely balanced by a more-ish fruit finish.

Finn (5580) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 3, 2015
Fra cask på Garderners Arms Hull 24 Nov 15. Mørkebrun med litt rødskjær. Filmskum med litt farge. Veldig beskjeden karamellaroma. Tynn lacing. Smaken karamell & knekk. Veldig søt. Litt tørr etter hvert.

The_Osprey (4887) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2015
Cask at The Railway Tavern, Richmond. Nice to catch up with this one - had many a pint of this at university. Dark amber orange, clear, still, small off-white head. Aroma is sweet malt syrup and toffee. Body is medium to light, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is resinous, gluey, bready and dry. A very nice well balanced bitter that carries a lot of good memories for me. But objectively it’s nothing too special.

Hippoman (527) - Durham, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2015
Cask at The Market Tavern, Durham. Dark brown pour with a mid-cream head. The aroma is thick with malt and also grassy notes. The taste is a little on the sweet side with caramel malts and biscuit. Really dull.

Copper color with slight brown milky head. Not much aroma. Toasty malt. Easy drinking but could use more structure. Worth a pint but would not go for a second
