Hand pulled cask at the brewery visitor centre and several North Yorkshire pubs over the years. Ruby brown with a thick sparkled beige head. Sweet fruity malts with some chocolate and a hint of peat along side some very fresh hops in the finish. A rather underated ale.

Cask, Beverley Inn, Doncaster. Clear very dark caramel colour, ruby hints and a thin tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, slightly sweet chocolate. Taste is slightly bitter but bags of malt and dark fruits come through towards the end. Finishes bitter and lasts well, easy to drink, very enjoyable.

I've had this bottles and in the pub fresh from the cask. Cask is better. A dark beer with plenty of character and bite. Salt of the earth. An honest drop. Strong.
