COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Permanent. Also available bottle conditioned.
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.

Dark, deep red/brown ale with a tan head. Satisfying aroma of caramel. Light and easy to drink, mild carbonation with fruity and roasted caramel/toffee notes. Finishes with a pleasant tang. Very enjoyable.

SilkTork (5218) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2003
Bottle conditioned. Absolute gusher. Deeply gorgeous. This is an Old Ale based on a recipe from 1937 for Whitaker's Old Tom. Toffee flavours mix happily with oak aged wine, lettuce, and a little sour fruit. Saaz hops in the finish. Brilliant!

joet (2172) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - SEP 2, 2003
wow, tobacco, toasty, foaming on the tongue, the roasty malts dampen into earthy hops and leaves-in-the-fall in a big round mouthfull.

Sigmund (5120) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 24, 2007
500 ml bottle, bought in Scarborough. Bottle conditioned. ABV is 5.0%. Copper coloured beer with a large and lasting creamy tan head. Pleasant aroma of fruity hops and malt. Lovely malty flavour with some caramel and fruity hops. A very nice and drinkable beer indeed.

jamesie1857 (1397) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2012
500ml bottle - a lovely beer. Pours a deep ruby - nearly black - with a thick white head which lasts throughout. Nice smoky aroma, with hints of burnt cereal. Nice earthy bite with a good mouth feel and an after taste of toast. Very good.

AceOfHearts (1375) - Mountain View, California, USA - AUG 25, 2003
Bottle. Hmm, how did this wind up at the Dallas tasting of August 2003? Dark, nice smooth head. More porter-esque than a bitter, which the label claims. Chocolate-coffee, thick and hearty mouthfeel. Nice lingering finish.

Whelk (123) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2008
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark reddish-brown with a tight off-white head. Aroma is strong fruit, earthy cellar, and light hops. Taste is roasty, toasty malts that fade to an astringent, herbal dry finish. Some cinnamon/cloves as well.

From cask at Three Judges. Pours golden deep amber to to brown with a small light tan head. Mild breadish and roasted malt aroma. Smooth and slight chocolate like. Vibrant caramelish dark flavoured with a light chocolate note and bit of liqourice. Light sweetness slowly appearing to an otherwise solid biter and roasted brew. Smooth roasted malty finish. Lovely.7-4-8-4-16=3.9

courtesy of Toni Flükiger - dark brown colour with a ruby hue; huge foamy beige head; nice lace; subtle aroma of toasted malts, caramel and prune; solid carbonation, medium-bodied, moderate bitterness; aftertaste of ashes and prune - unusual and deeply interesting
