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.

Fra boks p Mi2 Cardinal mai-17: lett uklar gylden med srdeles tett og fint skum. En superfrisk og fruktig bitter, nesten som en ipa. Citrusfrukter og ste appelsiner. Avrundet, mild bitterhet og elegant syrlighet.

LazyPyro (988) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2017
330ml can. Hazy golden amber pour with a nice beige head. Aroma of grainy malts, caramel, hoppy, citrus fruits, grass. Taste is pretty much what you expect from that aroma, sweetish malts with a nice bitter fruity hoppiness. Nicely balanced with a nice moderate bitterness, medium bodied. Rarely do I find a Bitter Id happily drink again but this is one is very drinkable.
