Cask; Seasonal - Spring (April - June). Also available bottle conditioned. <br /> A deep golden strong ale with both power and subtlety. The predominant use of lager malt, derived from English grown barley, and traditional top fermentation techniques combine to give a palate richness of warm fruit together with a fresh, distinctive hop character. The hops used are a blend of Continental ’Noble’ varieties to give a pleasant, floral finish. First brewed in 1995. <br />Ingredients: Maris Otter, Lager and Caramalt malts; Northdown, First Gold and Perle hops.

Bottled. A hazy dark golden beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma is sweet with notes of malt and caramel, as well as lighter notes of straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and alcohol. The body is thin inspite of the alcohol note.

leaparsons (9837) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2005
Bottle. Golden with a fluffy, rocky head. Aromas are zpiced oranges with caramel, floral notes and spicy hops. Flavours are sour oranges and spices. Fruity with lots of yeast. Fairly hoppy with floral notes towards the finish. Reminded me a lighter version of Burton Bridge Empire Ale - which is no bad thing.

Quack-Duck (9120) - Down South, GERMANY - JAN 10, 2009
bottle from a shop in Winchester. Hazy golden yellow, large white head. Aroma of cirtus fruit and cheese (?). Full-bodied, solid sweetish malty base with lovely fruity flavours and, again, a hint of cheese. Despite the cheesy flavour, which becomes less and nearly disappears during drinking, a good one. Lively carbonation.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2006
Cask (gravity dispense), Ealing Beer Festival, May 2006. Pale gold colour. Bags of resinous hops in the aroma. Sweet fruit comes through on the palate, with a decent citric hop rush. Also some slightly green apple/pear that makes for a sharp, but smooth mouthfeel, enhanced by a subtle biscuity malt backdrop. Crisp and refreshing finish with a distinctly bittersweet character. There’s some warming alcohol evident, but no burn. The cask Hampshire beers seem noticeably better than the bottled. I like this one.

SilkTork (5542) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2007
Bottle from BeersOfEurope. A pleasant and drinkable beer. Doesn’t stand out in any way, but does a reasonable enough job. There’s some mild hops undercutting the pale malt. It hangs together well enough. A lasting nibble in the finish. The strength isn’t felt in the drinking, but makes itself known in the effects. A decent, soft, mildly buttery and well behaved beer.
