COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The 4.5% ABV draught cask conditioned ale is made using a unique blend of Liberty hops from the USA and Galaxy hops from Australia. Traitors’ Gate is full bodied with a biscuity malty character, a refreshing citrus nose and subtle palate-cleansing zesty finish.

Cask @ The Star Tavern. The pour’s reddish amber with a tiny orange white head. The nose is jammy berry, some cherry, sweet malty aromas. Hints of grass and spruce tree hoppiness. The taste is smooth, rich malts. Honey-baked brown bread. Caramelized red berries. The finish has a touch of peppery hops and cedar wood. Smooth, easy to drink. Soft carbonation. Overall, not bad. I like this more than Wild River...

Vignale (2415) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2015
Cask, på Bishop Gustav, Malmö. Massor av c-humle och en hel del karamell och småkakor i bakgrunden. Frisk med mycket färska granskott och lite oljigt kådig beska. Inte alls vad jag förväntat mig, men riktigt bra, närmast en välhumlad APA. Fina maltsmaker också och bra bett i beskan. Snygg.

The Forester in Northfields, Ealing. This one takes a few to appreciate - perfect for the cold months.
