Recently had two poor Titanic beers, this my 11th one of there’s this year and what a quality ale. Had on cask at Cask Bar in Manchester, after Rochefort 8 it was a tough ask, but this was superb. Strong Walnutty/coffee nose, taste of roast, chocolate, bit of lemon. Chestnut coloured ale, very impressed indeed, definitely not what I expected.

Cask handpull, The Shoes, Nuneaton, 14/05/11. Chestunt with a level beige top. Slick condition; cherry and apple Chewits dominate; hay and cocoa hints, astringent afters. Fake apple and burnt wood aroma. Trace of bile and copper. What a frustating brewery.

Bright red. Malty smells give way to lovely hops in the mouth that seem to last forever. Lemon, lychee and tobacco flavours.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask @ Gunmakers, London. Shocking name for a beer but moving along...appears amber with a lively head. Light fruity hops and caramel malt. Just too sweet and sticky on the palate. It misses the point but drinkable.
