Cask; Special.
Available on cask during the winter of 2006/2007 for the first time for eight years.
This is a strong amber ale, boasting a sweet, nutty flavour, with rich dark tones from the crystal malts in the all-malt brew. Target hops give the beer its well balanced bitterness, whilst Challenger and Northdown varieties provide a wonderfully hoppy aroma.

Cask at the White Horse, Parsons Green on 27 January 2007. Attractive dark coppery colour. Slightly woody aroma with some hints of caramel. Dry and lightly bitter on the palate. Woody edge again. Not a standout but solid enough.

Apple syrup in this one mostly, which is nice because I love that. Didn’t get a lot of nuts. I especially enjoyed it’s light alcohol percentage. Tap at the Winterbeerfestival in Hoogeveen, 2013.

A very well balanced ale with both that deep malty sweetness and hoppy bitterness. The best of both worlds and the carbonation was a welcomed surprise and reminded me more of a champagne-like effect. Had a few of these last night at the Sherlock Holmes pub in Aarhus. Great cask overall, and one of the best I’ve ever had
