COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
This pint was designed specially for the Butchers Arms in Abbottskerswell. This is a real corker and is the most complicated to produce. There are three hops in this ale Golding, Fuggles and Challenger. This pint has a floral undertone but has been designed with a bitter finish. You could drink this pint all day and some people really do!!

chriso (7428) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2010
Cask (gravity dispense) at Pigs Ear Beer Festival on 30 November 2010, beer #3. A third straightforward session bitter in a row. Dark amber this time and with plenty of life. The aroma, however, was distinctly unappealing - a whiff of eggy sulphur coupled with, as Jan says, a sort of sicky edge. Better on the palate with a reasonable mix of tangy hop and dry malt in a quite traditional style. But itís all rather undermined by the initial impact on the nose. Hard to know whether this was a result of the brewing or conditioning although, as noted earlier, it looked perfectly OK. Not that you can always judge the condition by the appearance. Flagged for re-rate.
