Fruity aroma. Smells a bit like apples. Golden brown colour. Deep reddy amber. Very sweet tasting with a bitter, sickly aftertaste. Surprisingly sweet, almost tastes like honey. Overall not a massive fan. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Opaque golden yellow with creamy thick white foam head. Lacing and lip sticking. Aroma is quite hoppy, and tastes quite bitter too. Something else there, cannot define. (Leeds 201402)

Wow. Very close to being the perfect cask bitter. Dark, malty, complex and satisfyingly thick without being cloying, yet very rrefreshing and all at 3.8%! A stunning beer.
