Special Bitter Ale
A bitter to commemorate the year 1965 when the Black Eagle Brewery closed, Winston Churchill passed away and Robert Wicks was born. Brewed to a similar recipe that Bill Wickett used for his parting brew. Northdown hops give a clean, refreshing full bodied flavour for which English ales are famous. East Goldings for flavour and aroma.

On draught Carpenters Arms Limpsfield Chart. Also at Royal Oak Crockham Hill and The Queens Head Downe. Absolutely first class beer. I purposely travel miles for this. Once, after being served a pint, I remarked on a sign on the bar about guest beers. The barman was happy to change it for me but I declined. "No thanks, this is just about as good as beer gets." This is just about the best balance of malt and hops possible.

The_Osprey (5288) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2015
Cask at The Railway, Putney as ’Westerham 1965’. Dark orange, clear, still, creamy white head leaves full lacing. Aroma is apple peel, white bread. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is apple peel, white pepper, apple pie with cinnamon, resin and a soft bitterness. Not a big fan. This was the most popular beer on the bar by far - about 5 pints were drawn for different customers after my half. They can have it!

Decent enough.

Cask. Slightly hazy amber with a small and creamy off-white head. Lightly sweet caramel in the nose combined with some greasy hops. Medium body, low carbonation, quite some odd phenols and a dry finish. Unspectacular. 190912
