COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle Conditioned.
Pipkin pale malt, Crystal malt and maltose syrup. Challenger and Goldings hops. Morland’s original yeast.
A quite unique, strong, bottle-conditioned ale with an original gravity of 1059, full of flavour and character with a richly malted aroma and a nice, smooth finish. From a blend of Pale Ale and Crystal malts, this is a rich and satisfying beer with good presentation. A strongish beer in terms of alcohol, but there’s no bite from this Hen’s Tooth!

Swaroga (2176) - Gdańsk, POLAND - MAR 24, 2017
The beer has a floral sweet aroma with toffee, banana, butterscotch. Also feels a bit oxydated. Taste is delicate sweet with some little dry/sour finish. Overall not bad.

Antzrhere (170) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2017 Bottle. I found this beer to have a strong distinct yeast taste that reminded me of sick that I naturally found off putting. Ive had a few stronger (6% and above) beers with this taste and I think it comes down to the yeast and brewing process and my odd palette. Other than that flavours of caramel, malt and English noble hops come through. Thin body. Other than the decent ABV its rather a dull pint

tightslice (1157) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAR 12, 2017
Bottle from BevMo! in Menlo Park, CA. Aroma is toffee, corn syrup, old soggy well water. Taste is earthy malts and soggy vegetal hops. Some mineral qualities and then some artificial sugary bits.

Old review before making ratebeer account. Not bad, but had fairly yeasty flavor.

Sjohnh (872) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2016
Medium brown colour with red tint. Decent white head leaving some lacing. Medium body, low carb. Flavours of water biscuits, toffee and red apple. Balance isn’t great.

Davros IX (80) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2016
A typical strong bitter, but with a pungent flavour of yeast from the bottle conditioning. It was an enjoyable pint, but it didn’t have the smoothness that we are now getting with the modern ESBs.

Pours hazy copper colored. Thick cream colored head, small bubbles. Aroma of hay, cut grass. Very sweet and alcoholic right on the front. Has some biscuity flavors, along with raisins. Acidic.

sarauckelman (492) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2016
Hazy red brown with small tan head. Malty aroma of crackers. Strong malty/sort of sweet flavor right at the front and a real kick of alcohol. Definitely unusual. Finishes strongly with a bit of burn.
