COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Previously 4.0% & 4.1%.
NOTE: Only ratings for the Cask version go here. The Bottled version has a separate listing.

Appearance: A mid golden colour with a light creamy head
Aroma: This mid-golden ale is a complex mixture of toasted and biscuit like malt aromas with spicy resinous hop notes
Palate: This complexity continues with the biscuit malt and spicy citrus fruit flavours dominating, giving way to a crisp, dry hop bitterness
Key Ingredients: The very best pale ale malt and a touch of crystal and amber malts give Raven its complex malt undertones, complemented by the bitterness and dried orange or spicy orange character of Fuggles and Goldings hops

lauraele (6) - novi ligure, ITALY - JUL 10, 2013 does not count
Solo 3,8° per una birra che dimostra un corpo, un gusto e un aroma fuori dal comune. Amara quanto basta per piacere a tutti, la versione in cask è limpida come l’acqua scozzese di sorgente. Si sentono benissimo i sapori erbacei e citrici, seguiti da una punta di speziato che la rende molto croccante.
