Cask, Occasional;
RAW was originally commissioned to be the house beers for Real Ale Weston and the Royal Artillery Arms, both now sadly closed. The landlord and drinkers were already huge fans of Merlin’s Magic, but wanted something a bit hoppier. They were also intrigued with our unfined natural approach to beer. So we trialled three different unfined, dry-hopped versions of Merlin’s Magic. Layering the herbal dry-hopped characteristics over the rich malt base, and padding it out with body and flavour enhancing yeast really transformed the already sessionable Merlin’s Magic into something even more enjoyable. Everyone really loves the result. Consequently we make it available to select pubs whose customers appreciate its natural nature and enhanced flavours. If you are lucky enough to find some you will be rewarded with a truly remarkable best bitter, and perhaps begin to understand that beer is often the better for having some opacity.

BlackHaddock (8144) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2018
330ml can poured into a lovely Hoegaarden Grand Cru stemmed tulip glass at home on 23rd Feb 2018. nearly two years out of date! I wouldn't have rated this if it had been 'off' or sour, it's not either. It's mellowed I suspect, but it still has a great aroma and flavour without losing it's condition in the can. Slight haze to the deep amber/orange body, white speckled head. Light caramel/toffee nose, taste also has an underlying maltiness below the fruity hop flavours. Nice balance, like the hop bitterness that over rides the malty sweetness. A very pleasant Bitter all round, even if it's well past it's BBD.

Restrained floral aroma in an amber pour. Laid back hop forward balance with a big malty body and crisp clean finish. Pretty much what it says on the tin?
