Originally produced for the wholesaler LWC Jollys at the, now defunct, Ring O Bells brewery in Cornwall. After the closure of Ring O Bells, Jollys changed the branding of a number of the bottled beers to Carn Brea and moved production (via Keltek) to Hepworth. The recipes may differ from the originals.

Scuttled is made with a blend of Pale, Crystal and Black barley, with good English hops.

Bottled (Carn Brea). Sweet orange-apple and toffee aroma - slight hint of hops. Reddish brown color with moderate head. Toffee malt and light astringent hops flavor. Moderate carbonation and acidity. Tasty.

Bottle. Dark brown beer with a strong head. The aroma is lightly dry and toffee, and the flavour is very dry, toffee and quite bitter. Overall a fairly average beer.

johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2007
Very nice, well-balanced, well-hopped ale. Some lemonade in the nose, some passionfruit in the mouth, some grapefruit in the lingering finish. A very good bottle-conditioned bitter.

joe19612 (2594) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2007
Bottle Conditioned. A deep red brown colour when poured with a small head. Aromas are earthy with fruit and a hint of berries. A reaonable beer, however this is not a session beer.

leaparsons (9851) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2007
Bottle. Chestnut brown and red with a small head. Aromas are earthy with Winter fruit and some berry sourness. Quite resinous with herbal notes. Flavours are blackberries with sour blackcurrants. Some chocolate malts with red wine fruit and tannins. Decent.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2007
Bottle. Quite sweet to start, sort a crystal malt type sweetness. Finishes shows some light dry earthy hop notes. Not too bad, a little bit boring. Quite drinkable though.

bluekuma (94) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2006
Bottle conditioned. Amber-hued with a thin white head. Strong, inviting aroma of hops & roast malt which follows through to a good balance of sweet malty/ spicy hop flavours. Umm, this is good stuff. English bottle-conditioned ales; I’ve had some right mingers lately but this restores my faith!

harrisoni (17285) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2006
LCRBM2. Amber colour with thin beige head. Caramel and hop aroma. Hops are pretty good on end. Tingly. Not bad. Good malt/hop balance throughout with a very good hoppy finish.

Fin (9596) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2006
Bottle, picked up by my dad from Cornwall. Like it’s stablemate ’Dreckly’ this pours a fairly standard brown colour but with a smaller off white frothy head. Some hops and malts in the aroma, bit dry, quite bitter and hoppy tasting again another beer from Ring O Bells that is absolutely fine but hardly exciting.
