COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle; Pasteurised.
"Beers for bottling are drawn from brewery conditioning tanks and transported by road tanker to our bottlers. There they are chilled, stored for ten days, then filtered and bottled. At the end of the bottling process, the bottles are pasteurised, labelled and packed."
"Brewed with many generous handfuls of choice Golding hops, it is full flavoured ale with a rich fruit nose. The bittersweet malty taste is followed by an uncompromising long, dry and bitter finish. This beer was the first, most successful, of all of our bottled beers."

Can from B&M, Team Valley, Gateshead. Amber coloured with a thick white head of foam. It has a burnt toffee and red fruity flavour with caranle notes on the smooth, slight warming finish. Pretty Good.

BierMeHoos (587) - Maryland, USA - FEB 16, 2016
Where: Old Line Fine Wine Spirits & Bistro. How: 500ml bottle. Appearance: Pours clear copper with nice beige head, good retention. Aroma: Liquorice-tinged malt and English hops. Taste: Warmish malt flavours and slightly astringent hop bitterness. Palate: Light body but rather creamy however it does have a slightly strange finish. Overall: Not bad, interesting bitter. Worth a try.

Lively from the bottle. Amber with thin head and soft carbonation. Malty, yeasty nose with wood hints. Dry malty taste with hints of grass, toast, earth, marmite and metal, but a bit watery. No finish to talk of. Watery palate as well.
