Towey1989 (1891) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear deep golden colour with a very thin white head. Aroma of caramel, toasted malts, slight red berries and subtle spicy orange. Taste of caramel, toasted malts, slight orange, a little spice, a hint of mineral and subtle bready malts. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A short, dry, malty bitterness in the finish. Not a lot going on, very malt dominated with a little bitterness in the finish. It’s ok but boring.

Pint on cask at the Rotunda. Pours a somewhat cloudy reddish-brown with a tan head. Malt dominates the aroma and the flavour, not a whole lot else seemed to be going on, bit of sweetness, only a touch of bitterness.

Straight from the cask at the Horseshoe Inn. Pours a rich copper with virtually no head. Aroma is dry with a little spice and toffee. Taste is bitter with a nice caramel malt note. Everything is very subdued, including the strength, which is ideal for a long session.
