Evensong is a rich ruby coloured 20C English bitter. Based on an original recipe from 1937 this beer captures the flavour of its time. Goldings and Fuggles hops combine with darker malts to give a traditional English character.

sarauckelman (248) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2015
Dark red and cloudy, minimal head. Hoppy aroma. Dark and malty flavor with strong mineral undertones. Rather bitter. Finish is short and fizzy. Not overly complex, but tasty.

berkshirejohn (5033) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2015
50cl bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring. A gushing chestnut pour with a billowing light tan head; earthy, nutty aroma; sweet, earthy, malt taste; and a pleasant earthy bitterness before a sweet demerara sugar finish. More an Old Ale than an ESB.

Bottle, at Cardinal. An unclear, dark amber colored beer with a dense, two-finger sized off-white to light beige head. The aroma has toffee, bread and nut notes, with some dried fruits. There’s some bitterness in the flavor, with the same maltyness known from the aroma dominating. Nuts, caramel and bread crust. Full to medium body, a bit high carbonation level. A quite tasteful one, but it gives me nothing. Too boring, but sort of sessionable. 140627
