COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & bottle; Occasional.

Internationally recognised beer writer Melissa Cole visited us last month to brew an exciting new speciality beer with Matthew Otley. The beer a 4.6% abv golden speciality ale was officially launched on Friday 11th June at the GWBCF in Cardiff International Arena. Melissa named the beer at the unveiling as Thai Bo, a respectful nod to its influences that inspired it.
Infused with Lemongrass, lime leaf and galangal it has been described as having the aromas of a Thai green curry in a glass. The flavours make this an ideal summer beer as the clean refreshing flavours cut right through to quench your thirst and tickle your palette, it has been a big hit also with female drinkers as they describe it as being a beer that they like to drink. We think this beer will be making a return soon as a new monthly seasonal, but if you fancy giving it a try, hurry, we have a limited amount of casks available from this single brew, so call us to secure one of the most striking beers to come out of our brewery this year.

A Mes rate. Cask at the Southampton.
Hazy yellow with a faint greenish tinge. Pleasant dusty hop snout with a good dose of lemon. What makes the aroma enjoyable is sadly the same thing that makes the flavour not so great. Lots of lemon and coconut, some spice and a little flat otherwise. Good bitterness in the finish but it’s not really enough to save it. Interesting and it certainly gets plus points for doing something different but it’s just not my thing.

Cask, Philarmonic, Liverpool. Diddley ? Selecta ? Pallid gold with a meek white head. Citrusy nose. Similar flavour with spice and lemongrass notes leading to some hop bitterness towards the finish. Seemed a bit thin overall. Unusual though, and top marks for trying to be different and all that but not really feeling this.

Rune (13507) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 24, 2010
Straw golden body, no head. Thai-like spices and herbs to the nose. Rather unusual taste of rise, curry and ginger, and some earthy malts, too. Dry hoppy ending. Very unusual, indeed. Nice, if not a great favourite. Cask, half at The Rake, London 16.07.2010.

downender (8891) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2010
Cask-conditioned at the Star, Talybont 07/09/10. Pale gold with a slight white head. Aroma dominated by the lemongrass, with a touch of sweetness and floral hop. Spicy flavour, with lots more lemongrass before a dry finish. A bit overpowering.

rosenbergh (11799) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 22, 2011
Cask at The Rake, London, England.
Clear golden colour with tiny frothy white head. Sweetish lemongrassy and wheaty aroma. Sweet citrus, malt and wheat in flavour. Clear for a Wheat Ale.

imdownthepub (15332) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2010
Cask conditioned at Minehead Beer Fest ’10. Clouded orange gold with no head. It took a long time for this to come on, so it may be that I’m not tasting it at it’s best. I have to say, it was a bit weird though, the spicing seemed at odds with the malty, fruity make up of the beer. I’d like to try it in better nick, but at present this is how I saw it.
