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.

Aldolapache (31) - Roma, ITALY - FEB 11, 2011
Che birra. Bevuta solo in bottiglia, prima al birrifugio, poi alla Piccola Abbazia. Un ale inglese veramente ottima. Non stanca mai. Leggero amaro all’inglese, e non eccessivo.

jikvig (269) - NORWAY - FEB 2, 2011
A see-through brown with an off-white head. Aroma; A sweet malt profile, some toffee and sweet coffeenotes. Even a hint of perfume. Flavour; Good malt profile, some breadnotes in the aftertaste. Fruity. Good carbonation, medium body and a medium + lenght. Summary; A very good ESB indeed, ESB is best on cask, but this is a great example!

mjs (5043) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 30, 2011
(Bottle, 0.5 l, at Gallows Real Ale Festival 2011) The beer poured deep amber and almost clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma was malty and sweet. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, hops, fruitiness, white bread, herbalness and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty and bitter. A below average ESB in my opinion.

In a 500ml bottle from Waitrose Aroma-Caramel Appearance - Dark red beer with a light creamy head Taste- Hoppy-bitter with peal, spice, fruit cake lots in this. Overall - There is a lot going on in this beer and for me too much and too rich.
