Cask; Regular.
A copper coloured ale, brewed with four malts and three hops. It has a rich full bodied feel and a delicious fruity hop character.
Introduced in Summer 2004 as a one off. It has rapidly become a favourite in many pubs and is now a permanent beer.

Cask. Malt with floral hoppy notes. Pours copper with thin scummy top and broken lacing. Taste is well balanced with some light grapefruit edge to the caramelized malt and biscuit. No more than medium bodied with a slight grassy finish. An acceptable session ale but I wouldn’t seek it out.

Towey1989 (1910) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2015
Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear amber colour with a medium white head. Aroma of dusty yeast, toasty malt, some red berries, slight caramel and subtle floral hops. Taste of toasty malt, some caramel, slight red berries, subtle apple and dusty, floral hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, dusty hop bitterness in the finish. A simple, boring bitter with an unappealing hop character. Extremely easy to drink though.
