Not much on the nise but good thick dense off white head on crystal brown red. Lots of fizz and carbonic and thin in flavour and body. Metallic bitter middle and end. Not bad.

Cask at Bursley Ale House, Burslem. A clear amber colour with a fluffy white head. Aroma of caramel, burnt sugar, herbal, grapefruit and apple hops. Taste of caramel, fruitcake, wood, spicy, herbal fruits like apple and grapefruit plus a hint of resin. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and an oily texture. A long fruity bitterness in the finish. A nice, flavourful red IPA/bitter.
