A delicious holiday discovery. All round nice easy drinking beer now brewed at Wychwood Brewery. All Brakspear's copper tanks were moved over to the Wychwood Brewery to maintain the same process and flavour. Apparently the yeast dates back to 1776? A unique old school ale.

A gift from a family friend from the UK.

A: Hazy amber liquid with a slight 1/4" cream coloured head that dissipated quickly.

S: honey, yeast and grass.

T: Honey, grass, marmalade, wood, grapefruit rind.

M: Medium viscosity and a low level of carbonation.

O: Surprisingly tasty flavour given that this ale uses Golding, Styrian Golding, Fuggle and Admiral Hops.

500ml bottle has freshness date July 2013. Fairly dark amber colour with decent white head. The nose is a combination of dired fruit, lemon and honey. Seems a tad watery to start, until the hops kick in. Then a very pleasant, slightly oily feeling lemony bitterness with an accompanying nutty (perahps hazelnut) element. The first time I consumed a bottle of this I was under the impression that I was drinking brakspear Bitter and wondered what had gone wrong, but it has definitely grown on me after a few bottles over the last couple of years.
