Ryde Real Ale and Cider Festival, Ryde
Sold as "Charity ale", but cask had this label. Nut brown-amber color, tiny beige head. Raisiny, nutty aroma. Light to medium-bodied. Woody, earthy hoppyness. Nice palate.
500ml dark bottle, filtered, from Cork & Cask, Southampton. A traditional bitter, and a damn good one. Early reviews of this were not positive, so I imagine Yates must have upped their game considerably because, even filtered, this is an impressive beer. Nutty and fruity - great balance of flavours. We have the deep toasted malts providing gentle nips of chocolate, moving up to plummy fruit, and reaching the higher delicate notes of elderflower fragrance. This is a great session beer that does what a good session beer should do, quenches the thirst, easy drinking, satisfies yet encourages further drinking, and also provides bags of flavour and character. Bang on! My sort of beer. Shame it’s filtered.
