COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular. Formerly Robinsons Best Bitter.
Brewed since 1890, Unicorn is almost as old as the Brewery and is the legacy of the Unicorn pub from which Frederic Robinson first brewed for his father, William who owned the inn 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.

Erzengel (2607) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2014
Smooth and mild beginning, fresh, malty and smooth. Not too deep, but easy to drink with earthy hints. The aftertaste is slightly bitter, fresh-malty, earthy. Nice!!

allmyvinyl (3347) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 15, 2013
Cask at The Black Horse, Preston. Amber with a good white head. Faint aromas, but caramel and floral hops are there. Taste is a bit on the thin side, more malt coming through than anything. Slight bitterness towards the end. OK.

minutemat (1631) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2013
Pint at The Bridge End, Llangollen. Easy drinking but generally rather thin and unadventurous beer. A whisp of citrus hides behind the malts and hops but not really enough for this to stand out.

Vladivostok (237) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2013
Rather thin bitter with a slightly sour flavour. Not much aroma and although generally okay, doesn’t really hit the high notes.

Aniela (2313) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 13, 2013
Cask at The white Lion, Covent Garden, London. Copper, clear beer with a small offwhite head. Hoppy aroma. Hoppy and a bir grassy flavour. Thin boring beer :-(

Theydon_Bois (8668) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2013
Cask at the Rose and Thistle, Frimley Green - 05/01/13. Clear dark amber/golden with no head - looks lifeless and uninviting. Nose is thin and subdued, light malts, touch of fruit. Taste comprises malts, apples, berry fruit, light sugars. Medium bodied with some bitterness in the finish. Distinctly below average and dull.
