Brewed by:
RCH Brewery
England, United Kingdom

Style: English Pale Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
First brewed to celebrate the 500th guest beer at the Dartmouth Inn, Newton Abbot, and was named by a customer in a competition. It went down so well that it has become a regular beer.
This enigmatic full bodied beer with malty hoppy fruit bitter with a sweet taste which all vie for dominance in this complex and well crafted premium chestnut coloured ale.

Clear copper color with a one finger head with medium retention.
Aroma of caramels, biscuit malt and a mild citrusy.
Flavor of sweet caramel, biscuit and toasted malts, plums and figs, English tangy hops, herbal hint and finishing with a mild coffee note. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light body with low carbonation with lively tiny bubbles and a smooth feeling.
Good bitter that stands out with its own character, bolder dark fruits with a hidden coffee. Worth trying, especially if you like British Ales.

Pours a mid copper colour with a nice creamy off-white head, that leaves rings of lacing down the glass.

Hoppy and malty aroma, citrussy hints and a doughy caramel finish.

Taste is malty, citrussy and biscuity with a hoppy caramel aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, and it drinks really well.

A - Pours a clear copper with a finger of tight off-white head. This drops to a thin cap. Low carbonation.

S - Citrus, floral hops, slight liquorice, sweet light fruits.

T - Flavours slowly seep through, with sweet fruits coming out first (mostly cherry). After a floral middle the fruits become slightly bitter. Finish is mildly bitter and aftertaste is vanilla/caramel.

M - Medium body and very low carbonation.

D - It's OK, but certainly not one of RCH's better offerings. Doesn't appear to be bottle-conditioned like some of their other beers, so maybe that might be part of the issue.

Sampled at the Luton Beer Festival.

This ale poured a clear, iced-tea brown color with sudsy, tan foam. The smell was sweet and malty with some notes of caramel and grain. The taste was slightly sweet with a light fruitiness and a bit of caramel and a hint of chocolate. There was a mildly hoppy aftertaste. The mouthfeel was smooth and clean with medium body and low carbonation. It was dry overall with a mild lingering flavor. This was a nice ale.
