Cask & 330ml bottle; Special - May / June 2012.

A traditional Munich Dunkel inspired with a thoroughly British touch! Named after the 19th Century Prince Consort, who much like our beer, hailed from Germany but has since been ingrained into British culture. Munich, lager and roasted barley malts from Britain tease those taste-buds: and using British, German & New World hops brewed with a German ale yeast puts a new spin on such an intriguing beer style. A truly complex & contemporary beer fir for Royalty…. Prost! And Cheers to you all!

Fin (9588) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2013
I had this cask, gravity at Chris and Ruths, cheers to both of you for this, consumed Saturday 17th August 2013 Dark brown pour with no head,to be fair it was a week on from the big shindig so I guess it was getting a little tired, still this was still perfectly drinkable. Fruity and a little nutty, hops notable only by their complete absence. Touch sweet but with a good tang, tastes like a mild to me. Its not bad. A6 A3 T6 P3 Ov13 3.1
