COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle Conditioned.
Brewed by the Freeminer Brewery in the Forest of Dean, this hand crafted bottle conditioned ale has been created using British malted barley and top quality hops. The six varieties of barley used have been hand malted in the oldest working independent floor maltings in the UK and the choice graded First Gold, Fuggle and Golding hops come from the traditional growing area of the three counties.

Bottle. Chestnut colour. Malty; grainy malts, caramel, chocolate notes. Fruity; dried fruits, berries. Hoppy; earthy hops. Heavily malted with some tangy fruit. Quite bitter hoppy finish. Decent. (2008)

evergreen0199 (3452) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2009
Bottle from Morrisons Hatch End. An amber coloured pour with a smallish head. Caramel flavours, fruity, malty and a hint of hops. Alcohol very well hidden. A surprisingly tasty ale, very drinkable indeed.

Bullit (4672) - Burgos, SPAIN - APR 6, 2009
Bottle, Morrisons. Golden colour, white head. Aroma of toasted malts and hops. Flavour has toasted malts, toffee and a hint of fruits. Nice one.

Beth101 (531) - West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2008
Aroma of malt with a whiff of chocolate. Caramel colour with a large slightly of white head. Strong taste of malt with a coffee aftertaste. Slightly fizzy would have prefered it to be smooth

Pretty good for a Morrison’s own. Has that distinctive bitter bottle-conditioned taste, but plenty of fruitiness. I would revisit this.

imdownthepub (15030) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2008
Bottle conditioned, 500ml from Morrisons, Banbury. Copper colour with white head. Big fruity aroma leading to a rich fruity body, redcurrants and cherry come to mind. There is a graininess to the malt, I would think that there is a very pale malt in with the darker roasted chocolate malt. Not much on the hop side though, there is a winey note in the finish with an off putting acidity. Reasonable for a UK BCA though.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2008
Bottle from, guess.... Aroma is rich malts, biscuity, nutty and toffee character. Taste is similar, quite nutty and almost completly dominated by malt, tasty stuff.

3.1
Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2007
BCA. Unexceptional but reasonably tasty beer. Rounded body, toffeish malts and drying dusty hops. Slight background acidity is a touch out of place.

3.5
downender (8767) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2007
500ml bottle. Copper coloured with a decent off-white head. Aroma of red fruit and barley sugar. Flavours of more fruit, biscuity malt. Finish was long and bitter. very good.

3.4
Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 10, 2007
500ml bottle. Pours a good amber colour with little head. The aroma is fruity and also reminded me of candyfloss (!) but the flavour is a good balance of malt and hops followed by a lingering bitterness. Overall a good solid bottle-conditioned ale.
