Cask: Special - 2008
Caragold, pale rye, amber and pale ale malts work in combination to give us a fantastic golden ale with delicious biscuity characters and a body and warmth suggesting a more powerful beer. A hint of the Burton snatch and light citrus aromas appear on the nose and the fantastic malt character show’s itself in the swallow along with a slow-building warmth and spiciness. The addition of Thornbridge-grown lemongrass and the mysterious Grains of Paradise combine to give a multi-faceted beer that is more complex than its strength implies!

Cask (gravity) Burton CAMRA festival September 2008. Sweet nose of baked lemon cheesecake, even sweeter in the mouth with lemongrass cutting through. Fragrant and perfumed - I should go get a curry.
