Thick creamy head that lasted. Lovely deep colour with creamy mouthfeel. Not much aroma but what you can pick up is raisns and caramel. Sweet aftertaste with not much bittering.

Lovely hoppy fruity aroma. Dark brown. Looks like a proper ale. Undertones of caramel and fruit but with a hoppy punch. Fine drink! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ianwelby (441) - SCOTLAND - APR 18, 2014
Dark red beer with a bubbly head. Very light fruit scent. Flavour is fruity with malt but is a bit watery and lightweight given the strength. Drinkable but is, surprisingly, a disappointment compared to the bottled version.

Dark red in colour, hardly any head retention at all. Citrus bittering followed by malty caramel and some biscuit. Pretty bog standard and nothing special.
