COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
A wonderful, rich, malty beer. It has masses of flavor and a slightly sweet finish. Dangerously drinkable!
Ingredients: Pearl pale malt, crystal malt, chocolate malt, wheat malt. Goldings and Challenger hops.

Cask, Battersea Beer Festival, London 2004: Well, I guess my granny wouldn't like it, as I didn"t like it either. Dark amber color, sweet and flat taste. Boring.

A nicely balanced amber beer. Pleasantly clean, with spicy fruit and a dryish hop finish. Quite impressive. Cask (gravity), Battersea Beer Festival.

Cask Conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Chestnut coloured beer with bubbly white head. A dry, tobacco, almost smokey flavour with the odd jab of spicey pleasure. Long dry, fresh hop finish. Well balanced throughout.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2005 May, 2003. Cask, The Shovels, Blackpool. This is the Wolf Brewery’s most famous offering so I was pleased to find it. Everyone in my group loved it - it was the best beer in the pub, and the 2nd best of the Blackpool Rocks weekend. The colour is chesnut, rather like the tea served in Eygpt. The Northern style of smooth frothy head sat on it quite attractively. The aroma moved from blackberries across to prune then settled on sultanas. This is a full flavoured brew with a good tannic quality leaving the mouth dry around the edges. Tobacco and smoke are present, plus lots of dark orange fruit nicely balanced by dry, spicey hops. Hints of grapefruit creep in during the finish, but it ends with a dose of pepper. Yummy! [3.7]

This is one of the better Wolf Brewery bottle conditioned ales. Aromas are fruity and spicy. Flavours are juicy, fruity malts with a dry slightly roasted finish. Wolf seem better at the stronger beers.

Nasty wooly flavour and harsh palate. I’m only familiar with the cask version so the bottled beer may be better. I won’t bother to find out!
