COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
A classic Wessex style premium ale. Copper-red ale with a smooth and velvet sweet body and a refreshing balanced bitterness. Complex and rewarding malt tastes, with hints of roasted hazelnut, toffee and caramel. This beer was developed whilst studying the recipes from the long since defunct Bournemouth, Shaftesbury & Milton Abbas breweries and adding a little Sunny Republic sparkle along the way.
Malt: Maris Otter Pale, Dark Crystal Malt, Crystal Wheat & Chocolate
Hops: Styrian Goldings & Brambling Cross

Ruby brown colour. Good balance of malts, nice toffee flavour and no overpowering chocolate malt. Just about hoppy enough but not quite. Downsides: very thin and watery on the palate which wrecks a 5% malt focussed beer. Also slightly salty. I question this breweries water treatment.

Tried at the James Street Brewery Bath. Deep amber brown colour, lasting off white head. Aroma has fruit, caramel and nut. The taste is a balanced bitter.

a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2013
Deep bronze, thin loose head of white bubbles; bit a fruitcake aroma; big malty flavour with sweetish toffee and dark fruit; thick, soft mouthfeel; some balancing hops, but mellow malty goodness abounds here; perhaps more of a cold weather beer, but tasted just fine in mid June.

Cask. Mahogany, dark red. Malty dark hazelnuttyness, some syrupy, roasted coffee notes. Very fresh though, not that heavy. A very tasty amber/brown ale.
