A distinctive pale ale, dry and fruity, does not compromise just like the man himself. Dry hopped in the traditional manner which gives the beer a fine hop aroma.

On cask at Wheatsheaf (JDW), Stoke. Pours amber with white head. Erm, strange bitterness with a hint of toffee. Very thin and typical of Coach House in my experience.

Served on cask at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green into an English half pint jug (Jan ’12). A little background, this beer was brewed as a tribute to the great English actor Pete Postlethwaite, who died in January 2011 born in Warrington home of the Coach House brewery. Poured to a mid golden/amber colour with a small white head that held up fairly well through drinking. A floral, hoppy, grassy aroma attacks the nose - good all round sense attack! Quite a dry and hoppy beer, less flowery in taste than aroma but still a little floral flavour in there. Also a sweet and light malted flavour. Mouthfeel is adequate, not full bodied, not thin - just right, dry and bitter in the aftertaste, perhaps more than the floral/hop aroma and taste would suggest. Overall - a decent tribute to a favourite actor of mine!

TBone (16159) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 2, 2006
Cask@Oliver Twist. Reddish-copper brown, good off-white head. Sweetish flowery hoppy nose. A bit strange hop profile, woody-grassy, a bit out of balance. Long hoppy aftertaste. Extra point to Pete Postlethwaite, cool actor!
