Our premium beer, full bodied with malty and nutty fullness, hints of caramel giving it a round, soft, satisfying smoothness. We brew Monk with a very high proportion of crysal malt, this is malt that has been toasted so the natural sugar in the malt grains have slightly carmalised. This rich flavour gives the beer its deep copper colour

Cask @ Cross Keys, Chester. Golden-copper with a thick creamy head. Has a light malt character with an easty to drink texture that pleases the palate.

Cask@coopers arms, Burton. Brown beer with medium head and some lacing. Aroma of caramel and malts. Taste is fruity malts, caramel and toffee. Decent.

Cask @ Staff of Life, Stoke. Mid to dark brown, not completely clearing. Cola, chocolate, hazelnut, astringency in the nose. Weird. Mostly like a sweet extra in the taste, but bitter sparks shoot up all over the tongue for the finish and aftertaste. Ok in my opinion the least successful recipe in the Joules stable.

foxo82 (680) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2013
Hand pulled at The Victoria, Birmingham. Chestnut coloured ale which is watery and easy drinking and perfectly pleasant without standing out in any way. Some fruitcake. Some grass. Ok.

imdownthepub (10027) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2013
Cask conditioned at The Cross Keys, Chester. Amber with white head. This proved to be quite a fruity, malty beer, reasonably sweet, some bread-crust, baked notes. Reasonable.

Tasted on tap (cask?) @Coopers Tavern, Burton-on-Trent, on 07/11/2012. Pours of absolutely clear copper color, with a tiny fluffy head. Mouthfeel is mild, as expected, and just slightly carbonated. Taste is a bit acidic upfront, then transforming into the mix of burned sugar, caramel, candies, those sorts of flavours. Aftertaste is both quite acidic and sweet, also having that distint "mineraly" character. Recommended for the Burton ales lovers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
