COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also due to be released bottle conditioned.
NOTE: Not to be confused with the entirely different 5.2% bottled Augustinian Ale which is almost exclusively exported to the United States.
A wonderfully smooth drinking premium beer, with a hint of crystal malt. The late addition of Styrian Goldings in the boil lends the beer a continental flavour. Originally brewed to celebrate the 750th anniversary of the founding of the Augustinian priory in Clare, the original home of Nethergate.

jjsint (505) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2014 Cask @ Bedford Arms, Bedford. Copper/tan with a fair bit of head. Faint aroma of honey and citrus with a trace of undefinable grain. Taste is sour/bitter with an astringent bitter aftertaste. Passable but not all that exciting.

jackl (3868) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Cask @ The Willow Walk. The pour’s a deep amber color with a small head. The nose is standard caramel, light twig, some hints of red berry. The taste is much the same. Bubblegum sweetness, strong caramel, a bit of toasted tobacco leaf. Dry finish. Light body, soft carbonation. Overall, a really boring beer. There’s no margin for error with bitters. This misses the mark!

On cask at Mr Grundy’s Derby - Now under the tag "Growler Augustinian" - Copper coloured body with a small off-white head. Has a fruity malty caramel aroma with some hoppy notes. Fruity malty caramel flavour with a hoppy undertone. Has a sweetish malty and fruity caramel finish. Not bad.

tombyars (1317) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 15, 2012
Tasted this at the Troon Beer Festival in October 2005. Cask, gravity dispense. Clear dark amber in colour with a thin white head. Short spicy notes in the nose and a thin resiny texture to the mouthfeel. Poor lacing. Pale malts give a shortbread base with tart redcurrant fruit. Spicy hop resins give a strong herbal flavour to the long aftertaste. Finish is dry and woody with rich vinous notes. A decent session bitter.

Half pint, served from hand pulled cask at The Wheatsheaf, Southwark. Clear, amber body, no head, fragile lace. Half-sweet malts to the nose added by hints of resinous hops. Malt-fruity taste containing caramel and earthy hops. Dry bitter endnotes. Good (London, 30.07.2011).
