COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle; Pasteurised
Brewed since 1890, Unicorn is almost as old as the Brewery and is named after the Unicorn pub which was owned by William Robinson from 1838. Our brewery now stands over the inn plot, with our Unicorn proudly positioned on our brewery tower overlooking Stockport.
Unicorn is a magnificent pale tart, thirst quenching ale with superb mouth feel of rich malt, hops and complex aromas of Golding hops, malt and tart fruit. It has a long dry finish with citrus fruit notes.

JohnCook101 (381) - - DEC 30, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours clear golden with a dense head that settles pretty quickly. Mild and indistinct aroma. Light caramel and malt, definite herbal notes, short and quite disappointingly empty finish.

Fairly solid brew, but nothing special. Yellowy amber colour, quite a thick head. Probably good as a session drink.

The_Osprey (2565) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle from Bargain Booze, Skewen. BB May 2015. Pretty clear coppery amber, sparkling, foamy off-white head doesn’t last, thick lacing. Aroma is sugary, honey, something a little off or oxidised. Body is medium, soft carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is thin, malty, light floral and resin, a bit watery, soft bitterness. Below average, plain, but not offensive.

MichaelAwesome (4982) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 22, 2014
Bitter und nussig, dabei jedoch recht dumpf und leicht getreidig. Dennoch einfach trinkbar und erfrischend. Ganz ok halt.
