COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.
Formerly known as Three Feathers and brewed at 5.0%.
Strength is well disguised by the perfectly balanced hop bitterness and sweet malt making it very drinkable and bursting with flavour.

Pours a golden copper with a small, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has caramel, lightly roasted malts. A weak flowery hoppiness. Okay mouthfeel. Flavour is soft, some caramel and clear apple notes. Long, staying finish with a bit of hoppiness.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 3, 2008
Cask at Kingston BF, 28th June 2008, with renffisch. Amber with an overly sweet apple aroma. The flavour is similar and the palate is sticky, somewhat sickly. I guess some people might like that, but I found it really poor.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2007
UPDATED: APR 22, 2012 Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Rugby BF. A copper coloured beer. The aroma has some light hop notes with a touch of buttery malt sweetness. The taste is smooth, with some sweetness and a hint of hop. A fair body and reasonable alcohol. Nice. Score 3.3
Subsequent rating scored 2.4. Average becomes 2.9

Fin (7671) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2007
Bottle kindly picked up for me by Gaz, a friend who lives up in north Wales. Dark amber coloured beer with small white head. Another decent malty and hoppy effort from Great Orme but again the aroma was less noticeable, pleasant sweet and soft malty flavours witha hint of fudge coming through with each glug, bitterness was there but came through at the end. According to the blurb on the bottle, described as ’being like the IPA’s of old’ I didn’t quite get that as I didn’t think it was bitter enough, but still it was a nice beer and drank much easier than the 5% abv.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2007 A really flavoursome pint that is SO drinkable. Doesn’t feel like a 5%, but after 4 pints you sure know it is. Lovely beer
