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.

Dover Beer Fest. A typical well made old fashioned, characterful, hoppy premium bitter from Westerham. They are a damn fine brewery. It must be the yeast. Great character. It must be the brewer. Well balanced. Great brew.

Beehive, Brixton South London - cask conditioned. Full tasting beer bitter and slightly fruity. Two would be the limit on this one!

Caramel, floral, earthy, alcohol. Yes, definitely tasted of alcohol! Very drinkable, even the mushroomy back-flavour complemented the other nuances. Distinctly sweet.

Cask @ Charlies Bar, Cph.
Clear nutty amber with a small, nice, staying, creamy, yellowish head. Mild fat aroma, light berries and grass, good caramel. Medium carbonation, nice creamy and rather dry mouthfeel. Flavour is very nice, nuts, biscuits, dark chocolate and caramel. Light toasted, some tartish liqourice and berries. Reminds me of a very dry Fullers 1845. Lovely.

thmsboyd (24) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JUL 28, 2014
Bottle dated 08.15. Toasted malt and cheese and onion aromas, slighty butyric. Chestnut brown body with a moderate, loose white head. Medium bitterness with a touch of sweetness and sourness. Nuttiness. Soft carbonation and dry texture. Lasting bitter-sweet finish. Full body, Very well-balanced and drinkable strong ale. Would pair well with strong-flavoured foods like a mature cheese

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
