COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We have now brewed the final beer in our trilogy of beers to commemorate this very special Jubilee year. Available from the 15th October, it’s called CANBERRA. On the day of the Coronation, BBC footage was flown non-stop to Canada on a Canberra jet plane. This was the first time that Canadians had been able to watch an event on the same day that it had occurred. Long before the days of satellite or digital, this historic first was a major triumph. CANBERRA is a rich chestnut coloured beer to help make the Autumn and Winter evenings a little less gloomy. It is brewed with a balance of dark malts including Imperial, Chocolate, Dark Aromatic, and both Light and Dark Crystal malts. To recognise the link with both Australia and Canada, and to complete the tour of Commonwealth countries associated with this series of beers, we have used ingredients from both New World continents. CANBERRA has Galaxy hops from Australia, Nelson Sauvign from New Zealand and just a touch of Canadian maple syrup. This 4.0% ABV beer is available in casks, 5 litre mini casks and kegs and 2L PET bottles. In addition, 500ml bottles (4.2% ABV) will be available from mid-November.

Heidbummer (644) - SCOTLAND - FEB 13, 2017
Pint at Tap on the Line. Pours russet / amber. Soft nose of toast and caramel. More of that on the taste, with something earthy in the back. A little thin, and not much head, and needed.to be slightly better carbonated for me. Decent nonetheless.

ManVsBeer (10450) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2016
Cask @ Castle Hotel, Manchester. Copper-red with a small head. Has a good mix of earthy-sweet malts and hops, with certainly a few more of the former. There’s lots of sweetness with very palatable berry-fruits throughout its character.

3.4
jjsint (3093) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2015
Hand pull cask at Ye Olde Mitre, Holborn. Amber/brown, completely flat. Crystal malt, sour cherry, grass aroma with a hint of pine. Sweet taste that allows the fruity hop to shine. Long sweet lip-smacking finish. Despite the flat body, this has a lovely, full, syrupy mouthfeel. Suggestion of dark chocolate in the aftertaste. Very tasty.
