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.

Vladivostok (452) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2016
Naturally conditioned bottle. Medium-dark, malty beer. Rather a sweeter and more caramely maltiness than most of St. Austell’s bitter type ales which I found very pleasant. Would like to try on draught.

Bamsen78 (5063) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 15, 2016
Bottle. Pours clear amber with airy but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of fruit and malt, with notes of caramel and touches of honey. Bitter, hoppy flavour with sweetish notes of fruit and malt and touches of yeast and bread. Bitter afteraste with malty and estery notes. Decent for the style.

jamesie1857 (1960) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2016
500ml bottle from Tesco - Ruby red body, thin almost non existent head. Nose is a fruity malt, sweet caramel and an earthy hopiness there. Taste has a good malty rounded mouthful, lots of dried fruit, a little resinous on the way out. Enjoyed this one.
