COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & Bottle Conditioned, regularity unknown;
Brewed with wood smoked malt and traditional hops. An Gof Ale commemorates the blacksmith from St Keverne who led the Cornish rebillon of 1497 against Henry VII's unfair taxes. Following the defeat in London by the Kings Army An Gof was hung, drawn and quartered on Tyburn Hill. Defiant to the last he declared from the scaffold that he and his followers would share "a fame permenant and immortal".

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2019 Always found good and pleasurable but being a ex Lizard dweller i may be biased. Picked up a couple of bottles from St Keverne shop whilst visiting family. Great colour but weak head. I like the caramel malty nature and fruity tones ans goes down well. Doesn't 'feel' like a 5% ale but to me its ok alround.

Very muddy, very ripe, very old school. Falls into the ‘home brew’ category of beers (lol) but then, teasingly, from within the malted bog, out comes a strange sweetness, almost a mix of toffee and brown sugar. Enough to keep my drinking, but not enough to convince me repeat, I don’t think. An odd one. 500ml bottle from some off license in Lizard, Cornwall.

Delirium (683) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 30, 2017
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a moderate off-white head. Aroma is caramel malt and some fruit. Flavor is caramel malt, somewhat sticky-resin style, with some mild hopping towards the finish. I like this more than most people seem to.

Bottle. Dark Muddy Brown in colour; Red when held again a light. Distinctly Smoky aroma and taste. Malty; roasty malts, caramel, toffee. Hoppy; earthy hops. Smoky roast malty throughout with a slightly sour hoppy edge. Lingering smoky finish. Not at all extreme. Drinkable. Liked it. Should be classified as a Smoked. (2009-05)

Appearance- dark amber, clear, a thick foamy beige head. Aroma- caramel, raisin, malty bread, brambly hops. Taste- chocolate hints, dark fruit, banana, brown bread, plenty of carbonation, slightly thin mouthfeel. Not bad.

Bottle courtesy of Chris. Amber with a cream head. Quite fruity and malty. Toffee notes and a little coffee too. Just a touch of pear drop. OK.
