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.

Clear dark brown - red - amber beer. Small pale cream coloured head. Palate is light, airy and slightly crisp. Smooth malt wit a little light airy cream. - semi dry. A whisper of something dark in the malt. Light citric hops, touch of piney lemon. Lactose malt in the semi dry finish. Not bad.

Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff sep-13: vakker rubinfarge med fint skum. Innbydende aroma og en rund, fruktig lettdrikkelig bitterhet. En god ale både før og etter aftensang, men det skal mer til for at jeg får religiøse fornemmelser.

Well, well. Earlier today, I had been bemoaning the bog-standardness of the Brown English Bitters I’ve had recently, and then the evening brings this: Deep russet pint, with a densely packed off-white head. Plumptious toffee and fruit aroma. Toffee blue fruit, and raisin flavours. Full bodied, chewy, smooth palate, bitter snap in the finish. I was reminded of Double Maxim, whih is a brown ale, which might give you a sterr as to the way this bitter leans. Lovely stuff.

More average brewing from Durham. Shame really. Biscuits with a little bitterness. Not very impressed. Sausage club. Roasties and gravy club. 2 clubs I am a member of. Good clubs those.

500 ml bottle. Pours a dark red/mahogany with light head of big bubbles. Aromas of wood, brown sugar, and a bit of sour mash. Flavours of burnt sugar, resin, and tobacco. Quite bitter.
