Cask; Regular.
First brewed to mark the Fens Pageant in 1994, the recipe was used to mark the Bi-centenary of the North Brink Brewery. It is now a permanently available brew with an abv of 4.3%. Brewed with well-roasted malts & generous amounts of English hops, for a satisfying finish. The use of Wheat malt as well as finest Pale maris Otter malt results in a full rich malty flavour. Challenger hops give good depth to the bitter finish of the beer.

StueyD (1331) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2006
A dark amber brown beer with only a slight effervescence. A liquorice malty nose with a slight raisin sweetness. The flavour is bitter sweet liquorice malt, and treacle tones comes through again. The finish is smooth and somewhat fruity.

MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2006
Cask @ Akkurat, Stockholm
Aroma is full of fruity maltiness and so is also the taste that develops into a strong bitterness that stays for a long time. A slight toffee touch and some burnt sugar is also present.

Ungstrup (29987) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2005
[Cask at Volunteers Arms, GBBF 2004] A light brown beer with a small off-white head. The aroma is sweet with primary notes of caramel, while the flavor is sweet roasted with a bitter end, from some weird hop sort.

(sampled at cask-conditioned at Akkurat, Stockholm) Dark copper. Small tan head. Weak aroma of grassy hops, minerals, oranges and toffee. Round and soft flavour of toffee, wet grass, orangey chocolate and hazelnuts. Mellow long aftertaste of chocolate and grass. Quite charming little bitter.

RichardWilding (201) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2004
Draught at the Battersea Beer Festival 2004. This one was not my thing at all. Sickly sweet aroma, the taste was worse, like rotting fruit. I don’t think my pint was representative of the beer, was probably badly conditioned.
