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.

Scent of sweet floral hops and malt. The taste is interesting, first there is a berry flavor (raspberry?) Which is then transferred to a nice malty taste with a clean hop bitterness. A beer which differ from the general nature of Premium Bitter / ESB. I like it!

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2014
Beautifully deep brownish red with white foam. Smells cozily of pastries and dried seaweed. Rich taste weak in alcohol, containing pastries, spices and a sharp bitterness in the aftertaste. Nutty without caramel sweetness, overall a warm and organic feel.

Bottle. Dark Reddish Brown colour, clear, carbonation. Pale tan head, initialy 1cm thick, but fades to nothing fast. Dried fruit and spice in the aroma. A good amount of carbonation in the mouth. Hint of grapefruit bitterness and dryness. Bitter aftertaste is long lasting. A very decent, well balanced beer!
