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.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 29, 2007
Bottled at Monks Café, Stockholm. Pours out in a hazy dark reddish brown colour. Small bubbly tan-coloured head. Malty and a bit yeasty aroma of fudge, dades, black cherrirs and earth. Medium bodied with nots of nuts, fudge, grass and mild licorice. Rather bitter finish of grass, nut-shels, orange-peels and metal with sweet undertones of cocoa-powder.Pretty good!

thewolf (11589) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 8, 2007
Bottle. Pours a beautiful dark amber. Head is of medium size, off white and a touch foamy. Aroma is based around a malty caramel-ness. Mouthfeel is round, but still has lots of small bubbles. Flavour has some liquorice, anis, coriander, coffee - some cinnamon. It finishes on a strong dry, woody hops-note.

Stew41 (1811) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - OCT 30, 2006
Massive rocky head and heavy lacing. Dark ruby red in colour; almost chocolate brown. Light chocolate on the nose with a subtle metallic note. More chocolate to taste, more pronounced than on the bouquet, and some roast fills the palate out. Very porter like with the flavours. The fizz progressively settles and the flavours become gradually more pronounced as the beer warms up. Not a bad drop and done well for the style. Needs to be served at room temp to show its best.

JonMoore (2024) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2006
Bottle conditioned. Dark ruby brown coloured with a thick beige head. Dark fruit and malty aroma. Fruity and malty flavour; some sweetness and a nice bitter finish. A few other things going on; some chocolate, some smokiness. Dry to astringent, medium bodied. Nice, but I was expecting better.
