Tetley’s - Cask

IMG_20170408_191524_thumb[15]What they say: “Tetley's Cask is an amber cask ale, which has roasted caramel bitter sweetness balanced with distinctly aromatic smooth hoppy flavours and a lingering dry bitter finish……..Tetley's was established in 1822, by an ambitious young man called Joshua Tetley.  With his experience in the family malting business and the belief in its motto ‘Quality Pays’, Joshua Tetley took advantage of the lack of successful breweries in the North of England, compared to those in London. After nearly two centuries of perfecting the brewing process, the name Tetley’s is synonymous with a smooth, tasty pint created from a perfect combination of traditional and modern brewing techniques. Tetley's range of quality ales is brewed using only the finest quality ingredients to the highest standards to ensure the perfect pint every time.”

Unbelievably, in all the trips up north I’ve never come across this. Have had the tinned smooth flow version at a few parties though. I liked it though following on from a pint of Landlord it tasted just a little insipid, perhaps due to the lower alcohol content. Will certainly have another one though when the opportunity presents itself. 3.7% A.B.V.
