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.

labeerinthum (667) - Milano, ITALY - DEC 15, 2016
Lattina. Il gusto al naso di frumento, di luppolo e di floreale. Lintensit olfattiva elevata e la persistenza olfattiva sufficiente. Il cappello di schiuma abbondante ha una buona tenuta con persistenza lunga. La grandezza delle bollicine si divide tra media e grossolana. Laspetto del liquido nuvoloso. Le bollicine sono medio-fini e permangono sulla parete del bicchiere. Il colore ambrato torbido. Il corpo pieno. Lamaro medio. Lintensit gustativa normale e la persistenza gustativa sufficiente. Il gusto piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono luppolate e di facile beva. Il finale amarognolo e semplice. Il retrogusto di media intensit. Laroma in bocca riporta sentori di miele, biscotto, cereali, resina e lievito.

Uit blik geschonken. Een hoppige, fruitige bitter. Smaken zijn mooi zacht maar wel aanwezig met een zachte bitterheid. Prima!

larsga (7381) - 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.)
