Bottle Conditioned.
Pipkin pale malt, Crystal malt and maltose syrup. Challenger and Goldings hops. Morlandís 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 thereís no bite from this Henís Tooth!

I’m waiting for the head on this to go down so I can taste it....and man oh man....what a head. its a light wheat color, and so thick! I could spoon this and use it for cappucino! little surprised by the smell....a little more rank than I suspected....really kinda sweet, but not fruity....little concerned.... nice taste! Clean, bright...really crisp. Its hard to make out any one individual taste in this brew....not overly malty or strong.....not bad. Not great....different. I like this...

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

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.

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 isnít great.

Davros IX (77) - 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 didnít 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 (489) - 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.

Wow, what a hit of malt. Satisfyingly caramel flavours linger on the tongue. Packs a mean punch at 6.5% too. Rare as a hens tooth but worth a buy!
