COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Occasional;
It’s based on a 1938 recipe from the old Westerham brewery for an audit ale, based on the strong ales served at Oxbridge colleges on the day students took final oral exams and grades were announced.

See: Orange brown. No discernible head just a slight white foam on top. Smell: Raisins and molasses. Taste: Dried dark fruits, raisins. Sweet at the front, bitter at the end but then the sweetness of the fruit taste comes through again at the end. Pallet: Medium carbonation. Long finish. Very interesting ale with a rich flavour. Would probably only drink one per session because of the vivid flavour but very enjoyable.

kwik-lime (1177) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2012
Malty with hints of toffee, fruit and alcohol, which isn’t especially well disguised for the ABV. Decent beer but not that exciting.

yngwie (12722) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 16, 2012
Cask at the Wharf. A creamy off-white to light beige head sis on to of a clear, amber body. Some curtains show up after a while. Mostly fruity on the nose, a touch of liquorice shows up, along with a hint of roasted malts and some dried apricots. Medium body, quite a lot of carbonation for a cask beer, still soft. Liquorice, some roasted malts and quite a lot of fruitiness in the flavour. Dried apricots, some notes of raisins and a little citrusy hint too. Pleasant bitterness, both initially and in the end. Certainly a nice one, could readily drink a few of these. 120816
