Cask: Regular. Formerly Robinsons Best Bitter.
Brewed since 1890, Unicorn is almost as old as the Brewery and is the legacy of the Unicorn pub from which Frederic Robinson first brewed for his father, William who owned the inn from 1838. Our brewery now stands over the inn plot, with our Unicorn proudly positioned on our brewery tower overlooking Stockport.
Unicorn is a magnificent pale tart, thirst quenching ale with superb mouth feel of rich malt, hops and complex aromas of Golding hops, malt and tart fruit. It has a long dry finish with citrus fruit notes.

jjsint (3428) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2015
Cask at the Free Press, Cambridge. Tawny brown, clear with a small amount of clumpy white head. Caramel, orange peel and some spice in the aroma. Bittersweet taste with a bitter-sour bite at the end. Chalky texture. It’s not bad actually but fails to get me all that excited.

niquillis (2752) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2015
Cask at Fox and Pheasant, Armathwaite. Pours copper. Quite a dry bitter, no citrus but easy to drink.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2015
Cask at The Grouse, Birch Vale, Derbyshire, £3/pint. Pours copper with thin white head. Straw nose. Mid to light bitterness and some liquorice. None of the promised citrus. A little insipid but not terrible.

HerrBierkoenig (1591) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 16, 2015

Towey1989 (3153) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2015
Cask at The Manners, Bakewell. A clear amber colour with a foamy white head. Aroma of caramel, slight spicy orange, fruity malt and some yeast. Taste of fruity malt, subtle spicy orange, yeast, some mineral and caramel. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dryish, citrus bitterness in the finish with some tartness. Quite a bit of mineral and tartness in this, thought it may of been the hops used but doesn’t taste quite right. Ok though.

Joropoolie157 (8) - Hartlepool, Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2015 does not count
Citrus is the overriding factor of this ale. It is drinkable and refreshing. Good colour but weak head. Not the best, but I would have another.

MrBlueSky93 (524) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2015
Cask at The Manners, Bakewell. Pours amber with a decent white finger head, looks good. Aromas of caramel and cream...quite faint really. Taste is a bit thin, but caramel and toffee come through, light floral hops in addition, made for a nice brew during the lunch hour! Perfect if you’re working afterwards!

TedE (1424) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 9, 2015
Pint on Tap at Travellers Call, Stockport. Slight hop/acidic nose. Amber beer with small white head. Thin body with slight bitterness. Finish is standard ’Robinson’s’- bitter followed by citric/vinegar aftertaste. Not bad.

redders1974 (1575) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2015
On tap in the Healey Rochdale easy drinking but a bits thin slight citrus taste and aroma but a bit unadventurous easy drinking non standout pint.

Erzengel (9329) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2014
Smooth and mild beginning, fresh, malty and smooth. Not too deep, but easy to drink with earthy hints. The aftertaste is slightly bitter, fresh-malty, earthy. Nice!!
