COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.

Dorking Brewery are proud to introduce DB NUMBER ONE. This fine bitter ale enjoys a full flavour that leaves you with a refreshing aftertaste.
DB NUMBER ONE is brewed with the highest quality grains, using water that has filtered down through the surrounding hills.
It is then flavoured with the finest hops until we are satisfied that our best bitter has a taste that is unique and full of character.

Mildly hoppy aroma with caramel undertones. Golden amber colour. Hardly any head. Caramel tasting leaves a hoppy taste in the mouth. Quite drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask at the liberty bounds JDW. Dull copper colour with a thin loose grey head. Aroma is raisin and nutty malt. Flavour is caramel and stale nutty malt. A little alcohol bite in the finish. Raisin and dried fruits. Fairly dull stuff. Watery palate with light sweetness.

Bland aroma, rather dull bitter. Snorefest, there’s just nothing here.

Theydon_Bois (6986) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2012
Gravity dispense at the 1st Runnymede Beer Festival - 08/09/12. Clear golden with no head. Sweet caramel, orange rind and a little faint whiff of grapefruit. Grapefruit also in the flavour, orange, citrus, light malt. Medium bodied with low carbonation leading to a dry finish. This beer grew on me, would like to try it on cask as opposed to the end of the day at a BF!

evergreen0199 (1810) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2011
Cask at Ealing beer festival 2011. An amber/copper coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Hoppy, fruity aroma. Tastes hoppy, fruity, malty and quite delicious. An excellent session ale which I will look out for again.

maeib (8391) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2011
Cask conditioned handpump Thomas Kemp Brighton. A copper coloured beer with whitish bubbles of head. Tropical fruits throughout which tend to verge on a bit harsh. Quite bitter and sharp. served too cold which didn’t help.

berkshirejohn (4199) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2010
Cask, gravity dispensed, at the Back of Beyond (JDW), Reading. Poured bright copper with a ring of cream head; earthy malt aroma; tastes like liquified fruit cake, with rich fruity malts and some vinous raisins and cherries; the finish is lightly bitter. An excellent bitter - I’m impressed with this brewery.

Cask in the market porter. Alround rating: Sweet fruits, bitter peppery hop, malt is clean, decent drinkable stuff. Interesting pump clips too, i can see a few of those getting stolen.
