COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular.
"The Northern Beauty. A very easy drinking beer with an inviting malty aroma, this rich amber beer is brewed using pale ale and crystal malt to achieve this full-bodied flavour. A finely balanced hop character is enriched by the late addition of Styrian Goldings as a dry hop to give a prominent floral hop aroma and warming aftertaste."

detroitsteel (235) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2007
On draft at Ye Grapes, Shepardess Walk, Mayfair. Some floral flavours combined with roasted malt and an easy drinking palate, apart from that I can’t say it lived long in the memory. Not bad but not destinctive.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2007
Cask conditioned @ Humble Plumb, Soton. Nutty caraeml and fruit with mild hops in the background. Quite unimpressive and not as good as I remembered the bottled version to be!. Still fairly drinkable.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 8, 2007
Pint pulled at The Golden Lion in Settle (Yorkshire), a clear brown with a sparkler induced foamy head. Aroma is biscuity malt with a touch of fruit. A clean caramal malt flavour, quite smooth, though a little sweet in the short finish. The best of the three standard Thwaites for me.

Svesse (5908) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2007
(Cask at Pillars of Hercules, Soho, London 29 Apr) Dark reddish brown colour with brief off-white head. Malty, nutty nose with dark fruit and hints of dusty hops. Malty, nutty taste with notes of chocolate, dark fruit, prunes and balanced notes of dusty hops in a fairly sweet finish. Emphasis on the malt. Enjoyable.
