COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
We use pure honey from David Pearce honey farm situated a mile from the Brewery in Wiveliscombe. The honey is infused with the brew during fermentation to give a smooth creamy and chocolate palate offering a subtle bitter sweet finish. Brewed using Crystal and Chocolate malt with Goldings, Fuggles and Northdown hops.

Cask at ’Spoons, Milton Keynes in Wetherspoons BF ’08. Dark copper with a small off white head. Slightly ashy malt aroma, maybe a hint of cocoa. Slight sourness in the taste and some malty sweetness. Slight bitterness. Not very exciting.

Cask - ’Spoons, Canterbury. I was surprised at the darkish colour of this brew. Rather more of a mahogany colour than I had exprected from something labeled Honey Buzzard. Nice, creamy white head. A malty aroma, roasted at times, accompanied by the minorest hints of fruitiness. A dry burnt malty flavour profile with more hints of fruit perhaps, leading to a smooth bitter finish. Quite a bit of dustiness in both taste and smell. Has potential, but probably not in its best condition.

Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Chestnut with thin head. Dull, quite flat beer, thick on the palate with a touch of honecombe. Some huskiness in the malt, a touch burnt and dry in the finish. I’d like to try this in a decent pub.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2010 Cask-conditioned at the Bag O’Nails, Bristol 1/6/08. This was unusual for a honey infused beer in that it was dark - mahogany coloured with a slight reddish tinge. The aroma had some dusty chocolate powder, red fruit and a hint of honey. The flavour had plenty of chocolate malt with some Crunchie bar before a decent bitter finish. Very enjoyable [3.6]. Tried again at the Bag O’Nails, 3/1/10. Looked the same as before, but the honey was largely absent, leaving an indifferent brown bitter [2.8]
