Cask conditioned at Leicester beer festival ’15. Dark brown with white head. Really quite thin on the palate right from the start, some fruitiness perhaps with a touch of bitterness but overall very low impact for me.

Bottle from Robbs, Hexham. A very dark brown beer with ruby red highlights. It has a sweet whisky-like flavour, currants, vanilla and plum followed by oak and a creamy red fruity finish. Excellent for a pretty low ABV beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark ruby. No head. Soft cough syrup cinnamon. Flat initial taste, very little roast. Light bitterness. Mostly vanilla and minty. Not too thin but fairly dessert vibes. Finishes a cinnamon burn and clean tea bitterness. Pretty odd.
