1.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2014 Bottle. Pours cloudy reddy brown with a thick sized beige head that holds for a while. Full bodied, high carbonation. Aroma is malt, grass, with orange and a hint of spice. Taste is very malty, too orange & very dry poor bitter finish. Poor mouthfeel, high carbonation but disappates quickly in the glass. Dull & bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted this at the Paisley Beer Festival in September 2013. Cask, handpump dispense. Opaque dark russet in colour with a thin off white head. Hint of weak plum brandy in the fruity aroma. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Mixed malts give a juicy fruit loaf base with sweet syrupy dates and raisins. Very sharp prickle of earthy hops evident in the short aftertaste. Finish is malty and vinous with plums, black cherry and oak cask flavours full in the mouth. Tasted like an Old Ale in style with Mansfield Old Baily coming to mind.
