An old favourite makes a rare appearance! Challenger and Willamette hops, the clean fulsome bitterness is well balanced by complex malt flavours.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 4, 2005
Half pint pulled at the Great British Beer Festival, a golden amber with a frothy head. Aroma is a malty/hop combo and sweet yeast. A lot of sweetness in th flavour combined with hints of burnt caramal. Very smooth in the mouth. Very different to your usual bitter.

Cask Conditioned, at the Wenlock Arms, London.
Brown with a soft tan head. Nutty, almond and organic honey flavour. In good condition. Flavour whilst harmonious could have been longer on the palate.

SilkTork (5569) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2003
Cask, World's End, Tilbury Fort, Essex. Pleasant open style pub in a genuine ancient building. Right next to Tilbury Fort. Two Greene King and one local ale.
Smokey roasted malt aroma and flavour. Nice body. Marris otter malt. Some burnt toffee. Sort of Irish Red style, but a burnt caramel colour. Some burnt caramel bitterness in the finish. very much a malt ale, though the hops do finally come through.
