COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.
Also sold as Longleat Ale.

At OG 1046 and ABV 4.8%, the beer is traditionally brewed using only the finest quality of water, barley and rye malts, whole hops and the brewery’s own top-fermenting yeast. The colour is deep amber with a red hue derived from the Head Brewer’s unique composition of ingredients. The taste is deliciously fruity and malty with a lingering bitter aftertaste.
This fine beer is brewed to celebrate the approval in November 2003 for the reintroduction of the Great Bustard bird onto the Salisbury Plain.

The_Osprey (5742) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2016
Cask HP at The Crosse Keys Bishopsgate as Stone Henge Great Bustard. Dark orange brown, translucent, still, small dense beige head settles to a scum fairly quickly, leaves full lacing. Aroma is airy and sugary, demerara, touch of chocolate and some ashtray. Body is light, soft carbonation. Taste is fairly watery and sugary, light pastries and wafers, nutty dryness, soft bready sugars with an equally soft bitterness. Balanced and very drinkable, but a touch simple and watery too. Could easily drink several pints, but probably wouldn’t bother.

outlawskies (480) - Ohio, USA - JAN 30, 2015
Julie made a yucky face that it taste odd. I think it is okay. Kind of hoppy. Kind of bland malt. It is not worth the three pounds I paid for it
