Mid-straw coloured beer with aromas of tropical fruit and mangoes. The beer is sweet all the way through, balanced by some bitterness at the finish. Flavours are fruity with toffee apples and bananas. A clean tasting beer, sweetish but not cloying. Characteristic hop aromas come from British hops, but this is not too floral. Hints of lychee as it goes down. Very drinkable.

Our award-winning flagship beer! Unicorn was born in 1896 and was originally called Robinsons Best Bitter. Unusually light, agile, yet complex, Unicorn hasn't changed in over a hundred years. Dripping with heritage, it's a magnificent, thirst-quenching, thoroughbred bitter. The first of a bloodline that continues to this day.

India Pale Ales (IPAs) of old were heavily hopped to survive their journey to the colonies. This is Rob's interpretation - believing the hops may have mellowed by arrival.
