cask, King’s Head, Carlisle. Ripe and fruity with a semi dry finish. Palate and aroma is slightly musty and verging towards sour, with the damson becoming more obvious late on. The trademark Burton Bridge apple flavour also becomes more apparent late on

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted this in the Saltcot, Saltcoats (JDW) in June 2007. Cask, handpump dispense. Dark ruby red with plum highlights and a thin white head. Slight hint of dry blackcurrant fruit. Thin mouthfeel and poor lacing. Dark malts give a rich maltloaf base with sweet black grapes, damsons, and ripe swollen brambles. Very slight hop notes in the short aftertaste but sweet fruit presence continues into the finish. Dry woody redcurrant and tart blackcurrants give a tart finish. An ok session porter
