"Miracle" fundraiser edition. Hmm... very English, that’s for sure. A short, eggshell coloured head capable of giving you a moustache. Dark copper body with a malty smell. Hops are of the English bitter-and-that’s-that domain, which overmatches the toasty English malts. The list of brews showed this to have 50 IBU’s.The bitter aftertaste makes this work well as an example of the style.

Perhaps the best beer offered while on my recent trip to the brew-pub. This is one super-clean brew. A great malty sweet base with hints of nuts and figs. Low on aroma, but solid on flavor. The beer crispens up with a sudden snap, leading to a very clean, and almost minty, finish. Just a super beer that epidomizes the style.
