Rich amber beer with a fruity hoppyness
This Pale Ale takes its name from the castle built by King John in 1207, which is located less than a mile from the original Brewery, and from where he rode out to Runnymede to sign the Magna Carta. The beer itself is deep amber in colour with a blend of pale ale and crystal malt. The bitterness and fruity aroma are developed from a combination of hops.

Cask at the 28th Ealing Beer Festival. Pours clear copper brown with a small bubbly off-white head. Aroma of toffee, malt, molasses, biscuit, nut and fruit. Medium to heavy sweetness, moderate bitterness. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. A decent bitter and good start to the festival.

Cask at the Express, copper coloured with a clinging head, lightly dank and red fruit aromas, pleasantly malty and dry-sweet with a little toffee and a nutty and bitter edge. Good stuff.

Cask (backlog). Deep ambery brown colour with a small beige head. Aroma is mild toasted notes, some nuttiness, mild biscuits as well as some slight caramel malts along with a slight wooden, herbal and slightly resiny notes. Flavour is wooden, resiny, some sappy and mildly earthy and herbal notes along with a quite nice crisp maltiness to it. Easy to drink bitter.

Cask gravity at Tonbridge Siba 2014. Clear chestnut colour lasting beige head. malty toffee aroma. Faint hop. It’s a brown bitter touch of biscuit. Fine.

SilkTork (5946) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2014
Blue Anchor, Hammersmith. Malty rich with good rootsy hops. A tasty and satisfying brew, especially on this sunny day by the Thames.

danbridgey (3) - basingstoke, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2014 does not count
poured at the Derby Inn, Hampshire. Smooth pour with a slightly lively head, nice soft aroma with a slightly fruity aftertaste. Overall not a bad ale
