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.

harrisoni (16051) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2016
Bottle from M&S Stratford and drunk at home. Clear amber colour lasting beige head. A little Robinson’s house yeast aroma and flavour. Some caramel. Some hop on the finish. It’s a golden bitter. Decent except the pasteurised aroma.

Dark golden ale, a fruity hopped aroma, taste is mildly fruity, some maltiness, a light bitter finish. This is reasonably drinkable, with a slightly metallic undertone, but it is, I am afraid, just plain boring

StueyD (1549) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2015
A mid Amber gold coloured beer with a weak off white head. A light fruity hop and dusty malt aroma. Dry mouthfeel. The taste is a mildly bitter start, the fruity hop flavour leads the way, with the slightly caramel malt taste coming through towards the end. The finish is light and hoppy. Bottle from Lidl, Fakenham.

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

The_Osprey (4887) - 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.

Bitter und nussig, dabei jedoch recht dumpf und leicht getreidig. Dennoch einfach trinkbar und erfrischend. Ganz ok halt.
