An ale with extravagant depths, an ale reluctant to give up it’s secrets, an ale of hidden pleasures, this is Inntrigue. Delve into the abyss and you will be rewarded with hints of succulent winter berries and a concealed whisper of dark chocolate and freshly baked bread. This is an ale woven around subtlety, laced with a web of rare flavours: an ale of mysterious shadows waiting to be explored.

Cask at Prince of Wales, Farnborough. Sour malty aroma. Ruby chestnut. Deducting a point - whilst the beige head is pretty healthy, it’s pretty blotchy. Sweet. Soft. Saccharine finish. Sugar. Berries. Not too much going on but easy drinking. Was expecting more bitterness but a nice surprise.

Queen’s Head, Uxbridge. Very thin head which disappear almost immediately but leaves some lacing. Lacking in aroma other than sweet. Taste is sweetish with an edge. Some hay notes mingled in with light caramels. Smooth and easy drinking.
