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!!

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.

downender (7958) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2008
Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms (JDW), Bristol 20/6/08. Deep gold in colour with a slight white head. Aroma of caramel, elderflowers and citrus hops. Flavour began with a touch of sweet malt followed by spicy hops with a hint of pine. The finish was long and satisfyingly dry. Very good.

asheft (2989) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2008
[cask] Sherry, oak, bourbony vanilla aroma. Almost clear deep gold with lasting bubbles on top. Boubon and vanilla are strong in the flavour together with a medicinal chocolate. Assertive bitterness that almost puts this beer off balance. Very low diacetyl. Light to medium body with a tiny bit of lasting bitterness. Slightly more carbonation than some other cask beers.
