COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned English style ’real ale’. Burnt amber in color, it has a rich malt body and floral hop aroma. A batch was brewed in the Hook Norton brewery, UK, in 2015 to be sold from the cask at the UK pub chain, J D Wetherspoon for their Spring 2015 beer festival: "Dave Edney has travelled to Hook Norton Brewery, in Oxfordshire, to brew this beer especially for this Wetherspoon real-ale festival. This amber-coloured beer has a moderately malty body, with hints of toffee and roastiness, complemented by a well-balanced bitterness, fruity, citrus notes and a pleasing, dry finish. Hops used: Cascade (UK), Challenger Beer style: best bitter"

Pours a dark copper with no head with minimal carbonation. On the nose it has massive hints of toffee which seems to disappear as the beer gets closer to room temperature. As mentioned it appears almost flat like most traditional English ales with a fairly low bodied mouthful. Taste wise it's a fairly nice amber ale. You get your sweeter toffee notes at the start with almost a barbecue/smokey bacon on the finish. Not bad at all. Would be more my style if it had a bit of a fizz factor to it tho!

Morboso (146) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 2, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2016 Got a reasonable malt and slight passionfruit aroma, pours dark short lasting creamy head, some dark ale qualities but quite mild, low alcohol vol @ 4.5%, finishes short, need to drink it faster to maintain its pleasureable qualities as a result. a bit lightweight but smooth and nice enough.

Psytron (2501) - Turku, FINLAND - JUL 19, 2014
