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 Merlins 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 Merlins 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 Merlins 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.

larsga (7334) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 4, 2016
Medium offwhite head. Hazy, nearly opaque, coppery body. Resiny tropical fruit aroma with strawberry jam and flour notes. Dryish mealy tropical fruit taste with resiny notes. Mid-bodied. Sharpish, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish resiny mealy aftertaste with wooden orangey notes. The aroma is great, but the flavour is a bit one-dimensional and harsh. (0.33l can, from some shop near home in Norway.)

Cimbasso (812) - - OCT 6, 2016
Can from the brewery. Hazy orange brown with a white head. Aroma of grass and autumn leaves. Taste is not a typical bitter - there is a strong hint of citrus along with pine resin and grass. Also some earthy flavours and a slightly oily, herbacious taste. A great beer, but more like an IPA than a bitter. really delicious.
