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.

blueruin (98) - - MAY 30, 2017
Not as cloudy as I anticpated - it smells like a regular bestb itter with a persistent decent off white head. Tastes like english best bitter too, perhaps a bit breadier. It’s nice enough, but I’m not tremendously impressed - its not all that memorable.

3.5
Holmen1 (5874) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2017
Fra boks på Mi2 Cardinal mai-17: lett uklar gylden med særdeles tett og fint skum. En superfrisk og fruktig bitter, nesten som en ipa. Citrusfrukter og søte appelsiner. Avrundet, mild bitterhet og elegant syrlighet.

3.8
DwarfeD (3513) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2017
33cl can at home. Somewhat amber golden with a medium white head. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Subtle bitter and sweet tones. Grain, citrus, caramel, some pine and fruits. Nice.

3.4
sturmthis (1149) - Bavaria, GERMANY - APR 5, 2017
On cask. Hazy dark golden color with one finger fluffy head. Fruity aroma. Taste isn’t as strong as the aroma, but it is a very drinkable beer.
