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!!

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

altonbrownd (5163) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - FEB 27, 2010
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 (9895) - 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.....

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2009
The Baron. Lacy orange gold, thick milky condition. Marzipan, floral leafy and orange citrus aroma. Rounded tangerine hops, almond hints, generous creamy vanilla, maize-like softness for dessert, wheat, lick of soap. Some varnishy astringency. Tangy and easy to slug, could get you into trouble...

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2009
Cask, JDW, Carlisle. Really tasty strong amber ale. Malty taste very evident, but a bitter, grassy and lemony nose puts a bit of balance back into it. Slightly warming in the throat and becomes reasonably rich as it goes down.

TBone (15600) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 5, 2009
Cask@Beer Hunters, Pori. Clear amber color, big creamy off-white head, some lace. Flowery and nutty hoppy aroma. Medium-bodied. Harsh malty with nutty hoppy flavors. Aftertaste feels alcholic, it’s also malty and bitter. Kind of powerful cask ale, but not really balanced.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 14, 2009
Tasted 14/03/2009. 500ml bottle courtesy of BozoNZ. Rich golden liquid with a very slight yeast haze. Good head. Floral, minerally, zesty nose with a nice subdued malt weight underpinning it all. Big lemony herbal hop flavour through the mouth, jelly fruit, with a solid and smooth bitterness and a great Burton liquour character holding it together. Malt carries the great water, yeast and hop character in this beer but there isn’t anything anorexic about it... on the contrary, it’s glorious. Reminds me of Burton Bridge Empire Ale crossed with Moa Original - two of my favourite beers over the last year or two. There’s more to Weston-super-Mare than pasty limeys, Roald Dahl and John Cleese.
