Copper Ale.
Brewed with Pure Cheshire Water, English Pale & Crystal Malts, Engine Vein is a traditional but contemporary copper coloured best bitter, smooth dry and biscuity with a wonderful hop finish thanks to abundant late hopping with English First Gold Hops. Great on its own or with food & either way its even better to share with friends.

Towey1989 (3529) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2017
Cask at Beerdock Leek. A clear golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of cereal and biscuity malts, slight orange and subtle earthy hops. Taste of biscuity malts, some cereal, slight fruit, a hint of orange and subtle earthy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A soft, bittersweet, biscuity malt bitterness in the finish. A nice malty bitter with a hint of fruit and hop. Very easy drinking.

500ml bottle conditioned: BBD 31st Mar 2017. Poured carefully into an ’Old Speckled Hen’ badged vase shaped pint glass at home on 28th Oct 2016 during a ratebeer ’Virtual Bar’ session. Looks lovely, clear copper bodied, white head on top. Malts initially rule the roost, slowly however the hops rear their heads and the beer becomes more hop centric and bitter. Fruity notes in the flavour help to transfer the taste from semi-sweet caramel maltiness to grassy hop bitterness, clever stuff.

Cask conditioned at The Artichoke, Chester. Gold with white head. This proved to be quite a malty, cereal bitter with a biscuity feel. There is a caramel note which masks the hops a little. It’s okay.

AshtonMcCobb (7092) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 28, 2016
On cask at the Armoury in Shrewsbury. Appearance - golden amber with a nice fluffy head. Nose - orange and pale malt. Taste - more of the same. Loads of dried orange. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - the sum of the parts was good.

Bottle from Corks Out, Chester. A hazy golden coloured beer that pours with a foamy white head. It has a slightly tart floral fruity flavour, woody biscuit and roasted notes followed by citrus on the finish.
