COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Occasional & bottle conditioned.
Originally brewed as a special to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Nelson’s victory at Trafalgar in 1805. However, production of the bottled version and, occasionally, the cask has continued.
This premium bottle-conditioned ale has been uniquely brewed using our own Cornish Gold malt. Locally grown barley is traditionally malted using a special kilning process which develops a deeper intensity of colour and flavour than ordinary barley malt. Blended with both Styrian Golding and Cascade hops, the result is a deep bronze ale with a delicious rich biscuit flavour and a wonderful spicy aroma.

StueyD (1378) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2015
A mid to dark amber orange coloured beer with a frothy off white head. A potent malty aroma, biscuity and caramel with a touch of bready spice, then there’s a background hint of citrus fruit. Dry mouthfeel. The taste continues in the same vein as the aroma, bold malty flavours, caramel and malted milk biscuits, brining forth the spiciness. This in turn allows the zesty, citrusy hop element to come through. The finish is zesty with a malty background.

Bottle from Tesco. Pours amber in colour with a 2 finger white head. Aroma of malts, citrus, some spices too. Flavour is much the same, nice malty backbone with biscuit and caramel and some fantastic lemony citrus notes at the end. Nice!
