COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available in cans.
Brand acquired by Wells in 2005 from Scottish & Newcastle. On 1 October 2012, the brand was acquired by Brookfield Drinks, a company set up by Nigel McNally, former managing director of Wells & Youngs brewers. Currently brewed at Wellpark & distributed by Bookers.

This award-winning beer is the embodiment of the validity and integrity of the Holy Brewing Method; our 9% abv Mother Brew is simply stunning, as those in the know will testify.
A beer for sipping, possibly from a wine glass - and certainly one for sharing.
Appearance: Honey-hued polished gold and ephemeral white foam create an intriguing spectacle.
Aroma: A perfumed sweetness and oaked spirit nose indicate something special to be discovered in this handsome liquid.
Flavour: Sweet toffee and honeyed twists, turns and loops combine with a concentrated wine-like fruitiness, feisty light rum, swirls of malt, and decidedly ripe dessert apple richness.
Mouthfeel and finish: Powerfully spirited and a juicy spice palate with astonishing depth.

From can, pours a copper golden colour with small bubbly white head, aroma is sticky and sweet toffee and sight grassy hop, grainy and not too great. Taste is alright as far as strong lager goes, drinkable and the strong alcohol content is well masked. Nothing special.

Garrold (3920) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2016
Can, from the local offie. Clear, gingery gold. Film of white. Leggy in the glass. Aroma is thick, sweet malts. Some grassy hop. Not a great deal else. Taste is sticky sweet. Chewy, sticky mouthfeel. A bit heavy going. Sweet finish. Of a 500ml can I managed about 350, and it’s a rarity when I pour beer away...

jjsint (2124) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2015
Can from local offie. Drunk at home. Ok, maybe I am too much of a high rated, but... this isn’t bad. In its own way, it’s actually quite. Taste. Clear gold with more than its fair share of forced carbonation. Nice aroma! Pear, butterscotch and honey. The taste isn’t great but neither is it offensive. Sweeter than most lagers, with a thicker body as well. I hate to say that I would actually drink this again.

olliejobbins (1578) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2015
Hmm. Had a few sips of Rob’s can after skol super. Surprised this scores higher. Only just I guess. Didn’t see the appearance. Aroma is wet straw and hay, sweet malts, corn syrup and stale beer. Found this incredibly sweet and corny. Not good at all. Alcohol seemed well hidden though?

500 ml can. Clear golden body with a small white head. Aroma is malty with boozy alcohol. Flavor is sweet, slightly metallic, malt, low bitterness and raw, boozy alcohol. Medium body and boozy aftertaste. Not very nice at all by any means.

500ml can from an off licence. Orange, clear, lightly sparkling, small foamy white head. Aroma is light, tangy dry fruits. Body is medium, soft carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is boozy, bready, cereals, mint, no real bitterness. OK for the style.

Theydon_Bois (16230) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2014
Can on the train to Portsmouth, IOW Jolly Day, thanks to Soapy 24/08/14 - served in a bin bag, a UK tribute to the brown paper bag. Clear light golden with a moderate off white covering. Nose is light caramel, straw, bready notes, light butterscotch. Taste comprises much the same, buttery twang, light booze, moderate carbonation and paper notes in a lightly drying close. Pretty shit !

Can thanks to Scopey... Clear yellow with a medium sized diminishing white head. Honey, grain, sugar, paper, warming alcohol. Medium body oily/sticky texture, soft carbonation, medium sweet with little bitterness. Gets sticky and unpleasant really quick.
