COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Occasional & bottle conditioned.
Originally brewed as a special to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Nelsons victory at Trafalgar in 1805. However, production of the bottled version and, occasionally, the cask has continued.
This premium bottle-conditioned ale has been uniquely brewed using our own Cornish Gold malt. Locally grown barley is traditionally malted using a special kilning process which develops a deeper intensity of colour and flavour than ordinary barley malt. Blended with both Styrian Golding and Cascade hops, the result is a deep bronze ale with a delicious rich biscuit flavour and a wonderful spicy aroma.

BeerSkull (1374) - SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2012
Scent of sweet floral hops and malt. The taste is interesting, first there is a berry flavor (raspberry?) Which is then transferred to a nice malty taste with a clean hop bitterness. A beer which differ from the general nature of Premium Bitter / ESB. I like it!
