COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Special - Royal Wedding. Also available bottled (at 4.5%).
On sale in bottle at Windsor Farm Shop as The Duke’s Ale.
Originally brewed to commemorate the wedding of HRH Prince William and Kate Middleton, but now one of our regulars. Brewed with two specially selected hops, Sovereign and Nelson Sauvin from New Zealand. Unusually for an ale, Windsor Knot is also delicious served chilled from the fridge.

SlackerMads (1680) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2014
Cask. Clear golden with a small good lacing white head. A bit watery with a slight iron thing in the mothfeel. Some eggs as well. Other than that it has little to offer in terms of flavour; some biscuit, bread and wood. Little sweetness, light acidic, medium bitter. Nah.

JonnyDarcy (6) - ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2014 does not count
Cask @ The Crooked Billet E5 - Amber beer. Taste is slightly flowery, modest malt/caramel, fruit, mild bitterness and a savoury finish. There is a subtle "blue cheese" flavour from the Nelson Sauvin hops right at the start of the finish which is surprisingly nice. A really good, flavoursome 4% beer actually .

Not a bad english pale ale. Some citrus notes from the nelson sauvin and otherwise grassy. A little caramel in the malt. Not exciting but subtly put together.

dsmith4 (41) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2014
Cask at Bel and Dragon, Cookham, Very nice drinkable ale, quite a sweet caramel taste with some citrus flavours that also come through and hit you, but still nicely balanced

jjsint (865) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2014
Gravity cask @ the NWAF ’14, Derby. Dark gold to light amber. Spicy, peppery hop aroma with some bubblegum and caramel notes. Tastes bittersweet with some odd umami (meat?) flavours rolling around. A bit of salt. Strange but nice.

Cask Pint at Wibbas Down (JDW), Wimbledon, London in Jan 2013 - Orangey Gold in colour. Fruity; citrus orange and a hint of tropical fruit. Hoppy; grassy hops. Malty; biscuity malts, caramel. Sweetish fruity malty throughout. OK. Easy drinking.

stravale (2224) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - FEB 11, 2014
Bottle from Ales By Mail [230114]
Golden amber, clear, thin white head that dissipates
Aroma - citrus hops, soft graprfuit, slight lemon, soft sweet fruity light malts
Taste - Soft citrus, mellow grapefruit, slight lemon, soft fruity malt, some caramel, touch of toasted malts, flavour a bit too light
Palate - Medium carb, light body, bit oily. Finish - light citrus, quite thirst quenching, soft bitter, light finish
Overall - OK but was expecting it to be better from the aroma. Prob better on cask. Don’t understand why it’s not in a 500ml bottle as its only 4%.
