Part of the Bass Royal Ales series. Water for the mash started by Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh on July 3, 2002.

Tasted on March 13, 2010. Thanks to Traquairlover for sharing!

This poured a hazy gold with a bit of off-white head. It smelled like wild honey and toffee with some buttery barley and plastic. It tasted like sweet honey and caramel and toffee, with nutty malt and some wax/plastic and lemon zest, and a bit of champagne grapes and pine. It was watery with some carbonation, and had a lasting bitter aftertaste. Overall this was a very delicate beer. I was surprised at how much plastic scent and taste it had already (as this is typically only found in beers aged for 10+ years). It also wasn't as complex as I expected, but it still had a mostly great flavor. As long as you can get over the plastic character, this was a delight to sip.
