COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Occasional;
RAW was originally commissioned to be the house beers for Real Ale Weston and the Royal Artillery Arms, both now sadly closed. The landlord and drinkers were already huge fans of Merlin’s Magic, but wanted something a bit hoppier. They were also intrigued with our unfined natural approach to beer. So we trialled three different unfined, dry-hopped versions of Merlin’s Magic. Layering the herbal dry-hopped characteristics over the rich malt base, and padding it out with body and flavour enhancing yeast really transformed the already sessionable Merlin’s Magic into something even more enjoyable. Everyone really loves the result. Consequently we make it available to select pubs whose customers appreciate its natural nature and enhanced flavours. If you are lucky enough to find some you will be rewarded with a truly remarkable best bitter, and perhaps begin to understand that beer is often the better for having some opacity.

KansaiBeerLvrs (5191) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 15, 2017
Can from CBB in Osaka. An Untraditional Best Bitter according to the label. It has the look of a Best Bitter as it is an orange-brown with a tan head. The aroma to me says it’s a best bitter dry hopped with a classic West Coast hop like Cascade as it has big pine notes over a biscuity orange base. The taste is biscuity and bitter hoppiness with some bite to it. A solid sipper.

Klasyczny Bitter. Może trochę bardziej nachmielony. Ale nie Ameryką. Goryczka na wysokim poziomie, w tle słody. Ale słodko nie jest ani trochę. Spoko.
