COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & Bottle Conditioned; Regular.

A hoppy amber ale, brewed with a complex mash of Marris Otter pale malt, Rye, Caramalt and Wheat.
A shed-load of American hops provide a delightful marmalade / citrus bitterness, well balanced by the sweetness of the malt, whilst delivering a charcteristic peppery Rye flavour.

Bottle at home. Slightly hazy pale orange amber with a decent off white head. Aroma of fruity hops, brown sugar, caramel malts. Flavour is sweet and hoppy, a little dry.

Garrold (1234) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2014
Cask at Sheffield Tap. Clear, pale amber. White, lasting head. Red fruit. Grapefruit. Lots of malt. Some light spiciness. Possibly not in the best nick.

KnutAlbert (6067) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 3, 2014
Keg at Euston Tap. Nice, deep rye flavoured IPA. Rye bread sourness, too. Herbs, a bit medical, but very enjoyable.

MrHangover (2456) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle, given to me by jmgreenuk, cheers!! Pours a slightly clear golden beer with a medium sized, white head on top. Aroma is yeasty, caramel and has faint hoppy touch in the far background. Flavor is medium bitter with some hoppy touches alongside a big yeasty base, making it bittersweet actually. Oily, creamy texture and medium short finish. Overal quite an average brew, but pretty decent for the style.

danlo (1134) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2013
Cask at Cloisters, Edinburgh. Clear amber colour, foam white head leaving lots of lacing and aroma of rye, citrusy hop. Taste is earthy spicey rye with some fruity grapefruit hoppy bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry bitter finish. Very drinkable.

BeerViking (2438) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2013
Cask at the Magpie, golden with a lasting clingy white head, bright citrus and grassy hop aromas with a touch of sweet melon. Dry and peppery on the palate, then juicy malt with refreshing and astringent hops and a lasting grapefruit bitterness. Lovely!

jamestulloch (1328) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 7, 2013
Cask at The Hanging Bat. Clean golden body with a thin white head. No visible carbonation. Nice lacing. Musty aroma of biscuit and bread with a hint of grapefruit. Flavour is dry and biscuity with a weird soapiness. A rather odd combination of flavours. Thin body with a flat, very oily texture. An unusual beer - not one of Buxton’s finest.

Cask at craft islington. Very nice, lightly bitter lingering aftertaste, nice mid Amber colour,...
