A deep mahogany to ruby red bitter. Full bodied and slightly vinous malt character soundly balanced with the finest English hops. Celebrating the aircraft that broke the world speed record over Sussex in 1953.

SilkTork (5528) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2007
Brighton Beer Fest. A dark beer with some roast and hop bitterness, and a lot of garden mud character. Vague wet wood and old socks. Quite pleasant, but also potentially unpleasant. Initially sweet tasting, but mouthfeel is quite dry.

Cask (gravity dispense) at Ealing Beer Festival, May 2006. More deep copper colour than red, I’d say. Toffee and faint chocolate in the aroma. Soft, smooth mouthfeel with some caramel malt and a touch of treacle sweetness. Dries out a bit on the finish. Despite all the malt touches, the mouthfeel was a bit lightweight. More hop presence would have pepped this up a bit.
