500ml bottle from Saltaire Wines. Another great beer from Buxton. Pours a cloudy amber, has great piney hops aftertaste reminded me of magic rock Rapture. Will look out for this one on cask/keg.

Cask handpull at Five Lamps Derby. Could be beer of the day. Clear reddish brown. Lasting beige head. Good strawberry cherry malt and then slap of grapefruit bitter hop on finish. Aroma is lovely it looks lovely it tastes lovely. It is lovely. Yes beer of the day (although the Porreti was a close second).

Tried on cask. Looks ok, reddish brown with fluffy head, smells like a pine cleaner which is strange. Quite sweet but then bitter like grapefruit. Strange but tasty.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy reddish brown with a significant head that reduces to a lingering lacing, at the onset you have a slight fruity sweetness with biscuity malts, finishes with that signature Buxton grapefruit bitterness which is the most powerful taste in this brew. Itís good stuff

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Red glowing body with bubbly tan head. Rich aroma with both red fruits as well as darker hops. Sharp tones, but also rich. Very creamy body, delicious. Truly excellent. Alcohol is moderate. Bitterness very nicely developed, maybe a tat bit too harsh in the middle to middle. Not the most complex; more about loads of quality ingredients. Nice though, with an outstanding mouth feel. (50cl bottle)

(Cask@Catford Bridge Tavern) pours lovely deep dark amber to red with a small off-white head and healthy long lasting lacing. Hoppy and pleasing malt aroma. Taste is caramel biscuit malt with tropical hop undertones, pine, almost fruit cake bitter finish. Medium in body and lovely mouthfeel. Gorgeous!
