Thwaites Double Century was sitting on the bottom Tesco shelf, two lonely bottles on their own, and i know they where not there last week so i suspect they had a very small stock of this.
The beer is their 'celebration ale' for 200 years of family brewing, 1807 - 2007, its a 5.2% abv strong ale 500mls, not bottle conditioned.
A deep golden orange in colour, lively in the glass.
A caramel, malt and light honey aroma. Well balanced malts, fruity sweetness, raisins, and light hops provide a nice bitterness and citrus notes. All this on a good medium body, and nice alcohol warmth and strength. Really nice bottle(s)!.
