COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
Postman Prat 4.4% is a golden red ale, with a medium body and bitterness to taste. Just ripe to warm your Winter Cockles. It is a union of three hops, Goldings, Fuggles and Styrian with shots of crystal, chocolate and pale malt. Again our Head Brewer has been pioneering, throwing in a handful of late Fuggles hops with a sniff of extra Styrian at the end.

Cunningham (8283) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 19, 2017
Clear nutty color with a fine off white head. Good lacing. Looks good. Nutty and toffee in the aroma. Fine intensity. Medium body and a soft carbonation level. Tad sweet. Nutty, toffee and mild fruity flavor. An unusual fine and tasty cask bitter! Well done and proper served.
[Cask at Peter Kavanaghs in Liverpool, England]

BlackHaddock (7586) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2015
5th July 2015: 500ml bottle conditioned, BBD 13st Dec 2015. Poured slowly into an Abbot Ale badged pint tankard. Murky reddy brown body, huge tanned foaming head. Malts and yeast in the nose with a mild chocolate trace or two. Taste is more bitter than the smell indicated with a robustness in the body, slight chocolate flavouring within the taste also: dark bitter chocolate though. Highly carbonated, it’s a lively number this here Postmistress.

Cask @ Albion Ale House, Conwy. Clear mid-brown with a small creamy head. Full-bodied with chocolate, grain and a sweetness - with the former of these apparent in the nose. There’s a lingering malt in the palate.

oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 19, 2013
Cask. Ambery golden colour with a mediumsized slightly off-white head. Aroma is caramel, some sweet malts, grains as well as some grassy and herbal notes. Flavour is bready, grainy and some slight floral and grassy hops to it. A bit watery and thin, but therwise it has the elements for a good bitter.

fonefan (50778) - VestJylland, DENMARK - OCT 28, 2012

Cask (handpump) @ Crown and Kettle, 2 Oldham Street, Manchester, Greater Manchester, England M4 5FE.

Clear medium amber colour with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, light to moderate hoppy. Flavor is moderate sweet and light to moderate bitter with a average to long duration, spicy. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. [20120118]

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 21, 2012
On cask at the Crown and Kettle. Pours a brown colour with a thick, creamy beige head. Aroma is quite malty and nutty with some caramel also. Nice Nutragrain malty flavour with yeast and mild bitterness. A lovely creamy mouth-feel.

From a gravity tap at Northwich Beer Fesatival 17/9/2011. Well balanced, slight nutty flavour, very good considering it was from a gravity tap

imdownthepub (15161) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2010
Cask conditioned, gravity dispensed at Harbury Beer Fest ’10. Amber to reddy brown no head. Initially quite a chemical, tinny flavour with a toffee background. The hop eventually shows through giving an improvement, but the caramelisation never really disappears.
