COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Originally a September 2006 special. Also available bottle conditioned.
A pleasant refreshing golden ale brewed with a blend of pale malts with a hint of crystal malt and roasted barley. The hops are selected from of the best of British fuggles and goldings supplemented with hops from the other side of the Atlantic. The sweet aroma is of incense and elderberry with hints of caramel spicyness for an unforgettable pint.

Towey1989 (1450) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2016
Cask at The Earl Grey Inn, Leek. A clear pale amber colour with a medium white head. Aroma of caramel, biscuit, subtle melon and slight floral hops. Taste of caramel, biscuit, subtle spiciness and floral hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, biscuity, floral hop bitterness in the finish. Not much complexity in the aroma and flavour. To me, a bland, malty bitter with a floral hop bitterness.
