COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Seasonal - Spring/Summer.
A ruby red bitter, made with special coloured malts. A very rich malt character, which gives an impression of a stronger beer than its 4.2% ABV. Made with an American hop variety, the beer is an interesting departure from the norm, demonstrating a wide spectrum of unusual floral flavour notes which appeal to the ale drinker who is looking for something a little more cerebral than the usual session strength style beers. The hop is out there somewhere . . . Originally brewed as a one off, demand has led to permanent production. NOT BOTTLED

chriso (7396) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2006
Cask (handpump) at the Willow Walk (JDW), Victoria. Quite dark brown colour for a bitter. Thin, off-white head. Toffee malt aroma, with a touch of chocolate. More malty than hoppy on the palate. Caramel to the fore. Some sweetness, but not too cloying. Clean, fresh mouthfeel. Rather nice, although I tend to b prefer bitters that have more overt bitterness.
