COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Status Uncertain - also available bottle conditioned.
INGREDIENTS: Maris Otter pale malt/crystal malt/Cascade, Fuggle and First Gold hops. A copper-coloured bitter, bottled, like the others featured here, by allowing cask beer to drop bright, transferring it to a new cask and kräusening before filling.
TASTING NOTES: Red-amber beer, this time with a hoppy aroma backed by a little malt. It's a full flavoured, hoppy, malty best bitter to taste, with a mellow, moreish, pleasantly bitter and hoppy finish.

Bottle, shared by fonefan. It pours a quite clear, golden body, topped by a small, beige head. There’s fruit and caramel in the aroma, but also some signs of infection. Lemony, caramel flavor with the fruits dominating. Dryish and astringent in the mouth. Lemony finish. Quite drinkable, and I bet it’s a great session beer from cask. Still, too focused on the lemon.

Maria (10164) - Thisted, DENMARK - AUG 25, 2008
TFODRBSG08 Courtesy of Fonefan. Golden with a creamy head. The aroma is on the thin side with light fruity notes. The flavour has a sour, slightly sharp citrus, mostly grapefruit, but also a little malt and sweetness. IMO to heavy on the sharp citrus, making it a bit unbalanced.

Dedollewaitor (13925) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2008
50cl bottle. Pours hazy orange/amber with a off white head. Thin & a bit mouldy old taste with hints of citrus. Palate is a bit weak. Allright!

bembelembe (216) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 10, 2008
Fruity (mostly citrus and distant berries) light bitter. Quite drinkable. Has spicy spectre but it’s not very dominant. Light hops with light herbal aroma. Reddish in colour. Low in carbonation, medium head. Refreshing fruity aftertaste, bit sweet but light.

DruncanVeasey (7203) - NUNEATON, Top 22, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2008
Red Knocker. And then the beer. Sunburnt half at the brewtap. The quality of this brewer’s beers just didn’t dip throughout the evening...a waft of lemony, blackcurranty hop on the snout again. Clear chesnut with beige lace. Juicy hops to the fore, with a faintly biscuity background. Zesty and unputdownably moreish. The Fox is really on form. If you’re in the Norfolk area, check out this brewer’s generously-hopped, no-expense spared ’portfolio’. I was impressed by everything I tasted, and 1401 beers in, I’m getting a bit fussy.

Aroma is honey, grassy, citrus. Taste is pale malts, grass, citrus and a bit spicey malts in the finish. Very drinkable.

Glouglouburp (6022) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 14, 2006
Cloudy red-copper with many particles. A very earthy beer with pine tree and conifers bark flavours. A bit fruity with some minerals notes (almost metallic). Medium bitterness. The taste was more original than the standard description I’m making of it but I don’t know how to put it. I liked it. I’d take a few big bottles of that stuff. One could say that I like big knockers.

imdownthepub (10325) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2006
Cask conditioned (Red Knocker) at The Fox & Hounds, Heacham, Norfolk. Orange amber with light head. Sharp citric aroma followed by a lemon citrusy tang, very much on the tart side and a zingy lemonade flavour. Lacks body and balance for me, not the best Fox beer I had.

thebeertourist (4836) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 19, 2006
Bottle.Pours amber with a big offwhite head. Complex hop aroma promising citrus, grass, some earthiness, even berries. Good fruity flavours, mostly berries, offset by good bitterness. Some acidic as well as metallic notes. Dry. Light-bodied and sparkling. A great little beer it is.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 4, 2006
Poured from the bottle (courtesy of the London crew), lively out of the bottle with lots of carbonation that settles to a good clear ruby red with a think head of white foam (tha stayed through the whole glass). A malty aroma - nothing fancy, just clean and eniticing. A perfect medium bitter mouthfeel, releasing the fruit and malt flavours, with a spiced and tangy finish. Very easy to drink and very enjoyable too (more-ish is right).
