A light-tan beer presenting medium malty-sweetness with powerful, spicy, floral bitterness and hop character designed to re-create the iconic style of India Pale Ales of the 19th. Century.

"A blend of pure malts, Goldings and Fuggle hops give a strong ale with a good malt character and a fresh hop aroma."
Michael Jackson 500 Classic Brews.

Towey1989 (962) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2015
Cask at The Holy Inadequate, Etruria. A clear golden colour with a foray white head. Aroma of grain, lemon, some orange, grass and slight floral hops. Taste of grain, grass, some lemon, subtle caramel and slight prefumey, floral hops. Light bodied and a slightly oily texture. A bittersweet, citrusy hop bitterness in the finish. Very similar to a citrusy Pilsner, sweet and grainy but balanced with grassy and citrusy bitterness. Pretty decent.

A bit of an opportunist treat to be given this beer. In the end it hadn’t travelled as well as it could sadly. It appeared hazy gold with a coarse covering of white head. Aromas of brassy golden fruit and some woody Fuggles character. The flavour was similar but not earth shattering with a gentle bitterness. There was some oxidation but I prefer not to dwell on it.

Lightly hazy gold beer, good bubbly pale cream colour head. Palate is light and semi dry. Decent fine carbonation. Fairly sweet pale malts, whisper of cream. A little floral bitterness brings some balance. Whisper of marmalade, well buried. Not a lot going on here but it’s still manages to be very drinkable. Clever!

On cask at The Holy Inadequate, Etruria. Copper body with an off white head. Sharp hoppy aroma. Good fresh tasting malts with a reasonable amount of sweetness and fruitiness. Very nice.

[Bottle from the Hop Pocket Wine Company, Herefordshire] Deep gold with a moderate white head and a too-strong fizz. Grassy up front with a little cardboard and a minerally bitterness in the finish. Bit like a pilsener. Bit of lemon comes through afterwards. Not for me this one, although I imagine it’d be a bit better in cask.

Bottle. Golden ale with small white head. Slight citrus aroma. Quite sweet at first before a bitter finish with citrus and pine.

500ml bottle from Welshpool Charlie’s. Pours amber, lively head fades quickly with limited lacing. I’m not getting much aroma, but the taste is refined. Plenty of complex malts and strong hops, but neither dominates and it’s still gentle in the mouth. I remember the cask version (at their excellent pub) being more of a normal IPA, but this is more of a refined brew.
