A rich red premium cask ale produced using pale ale, crystal and wheat malt. A full fruity/citrus hop flavour of willamette and fuggle with the light aroma of goldings.

Aroma is complex fruit and malty, similar to an ESB. The flavor is similar to the aroma with a hint of nuttiness, and a decent hoppy finish. Solid ale, close to an ESB in flavor.

Half litre bottle, $2 closeout @ Binny’s, Bolingbrook. I can only guess one of Binny’s distributors is shedding some brands from their portfolio, but this gives me a chance to try my first REAL Welch beer—InBev brewing Murphy’s Irish Stout there hardly worth counting. Fruity smell under the cap that I didn’t expect in a bitter. In glass it has an alcohol smell, bit of cough drop, so this may be a bit old. Light brown color, filtered clear, under a thin head. First thing I notice upon tasting is that there’s low carbonation, per style. Fruity ale taste. Despite the alcohol smell, there’s no burn on the tongue. Certainly a nice pub drink. Some citrus that may come from hop, or a bit of staling. Certainly worth revisiting if I get a chance.

Braudog (6385) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - OCT 31, 2010
Bottle. Pours just like the excellent photo, orange-amber with a nice creamy top. The aroma is caged up, I think, barely discernible. The beer drinks with a distinct breadiness, thick like a slice of pumpernickel, musty and gamey. Quite the drinkable bitter. (#4006, 10/31/2010)

bottle, bought somewhere in South Wales. Hazy amber-golden colour, large beige head. Malty, pleasantly fruity with some citrus flavours. Shy hoppy flavours dominate the lingering finish. Good!
