gegwilson (1690) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle from Booth’s in Ripon. A ruby ale with a cream head. Lots of toffee in the flavour. It’s quite sweet too and a little fruity. A reasonable amount of flavour going on. It’s a bit on the thin side and has a dry finish that I’m not keen on. Not bad overall.

Hazed orange-brown with a thin head. Has some sweet fruit in its nose, a little drier in its taste in this respect with some grain evident.

Thanks to Seanyfo for this beer. Best before date is 30.07.2014, Batch 539. Light amber colour. The beer starts mild, slightly sour. Nice "red" malty hints, very smooth. The main part is a bit watery, nice malty and a bit (for me) too sweet. The slight sourness in the end seems to be an infection - it doesn’t really fit into the whole picture. But as the beer was stored correctly and has still 9 month shelf-life, I don’t know. In the mouth stays a nice, smooth vienna-style malt-aroma with the typical bitterness of a nice ale. --> Interesting beer! 10/11/8/8
