Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
A railway themed name after the name for two engines pulling a train. A golden brew made only with pale ale malt and goldings hops giving it a well balanced hoppy flavour. Very drinkable - beware!!

Cask at the Bree Louise. Pours clear gold with a light head. Some toasty malts on the nose with a glance of citrus. Medium sweet flavor. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Has a slightly bitter finish with decent balance (yeah, the description is actually pretty fair) and light dough. Alright.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2010 (Bottle conditioned) looks cool , like a dirty submarine ... deep strawberry blond, with bits of sediment swimming around , lively creamy head . A beer that is glowing in the glass. some triopical fruit hops and bready malt in the nose. flavours show sweet toffee malts and earthiness -from the sediment , almost soapy , with a gin and tonic fruity like dry aromatic hoppiness .spicy vibrant bitterness. Very drinkable and pleasant

Bottle from Cracked Kettle. Nice bright orange body with rocky head. Nose of bitter hops. Starts quite tart and smooth. Really nice texture. With lots of fruits. And ends quite bitter. Enjoyable to be sure.

pivnizub (9166) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - FEB 25, 2010
Bottle: Deep golden, hazy, some floaties visible, big rocky off-white head - leaving an impressive lacework; sweetish grains and mild exotic fruits in the bitter-hoppy nose; moderate dryish bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied, creamy MF; lingering spicy fruity and bitter finish with hops sticking to the palate in the aftertaste. Pretty good.....
