Nice English beer, and looks impeccable in an English dimple mug. Perfect head and lace that hangs around for the whole ride. Nice brew.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours with a clear dark ruby color, almost coppery and a very decent white and foamy head, with a decent retention.
The aroma is nothing special - hoppy along with some yeast as well.
The taste is sweet, yeasty and bready (not my favourite) with a decently bitter finish.
All in all a drinkable, although quite filling, ale. Could be better, but it could be much worse.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Amundsen. A crystal clear deep dark wood brown one with a nice medium sized beige lacing top. The nose has some light sugary sweetness. I get a little bit of yeast and definitely sweet sticky red berries. Nice. It has a really gliding light oily mouthfeel and a soft prickling carbonation level. Nice English profile in this with a gentle bitterness, lots of malt sweetness, red berries and traces of caramel wrapper. Quite delicate, easy to drink and tasty. 13.11.2013

THX for the sample draft @ Delrium Hoppy Loft. Others have entered this under the cask version but the keg version for me stil bellongs more under the bottled version far more than under the cask one. Traditionalist? CAMRA too mach maybe? Brown coloured, amber hue, white faint head. Nose is sweet oily caramel, floral hops & brown sugar. Taste is sweet caramel with herbs, sweetish oily with brown sugar, floral hops & sweet malts with faint hay. Oily body, this feels like one of the more a like macro go at the style & less exciting stuff comming out of the UK.
