the least good of the Buxton brews iíve had. but still much better than a lot of beer.
deep murky cherry brown. no head.
aroma of sweet malt and toffee. a good hop aroma too.
flavour is quite complex but doensít quite hang together properly. spicy, hoppy, toffee, smokey. intersting

Cask at the Euston Tap, London. Creamy dark copper-brown, nice foamy head. Buttery nose, butterscotch, tart ruby ale. Nice malty bitter. OK

BC from the brewery. Murky copper with a stable cream collar that falls way with sipping. Slightly dribble-making, mostly hop aroma wafting headily with pollen, Neopolitan ice cream, blackcurrant...turning increasingly to liquorice. Lavender-like, blackcurrant and liquorice notes dominate the palate with an added chaff of dry roasted. Another winner from Buxton humming softly with the joys of the hop.

Bottle. My first from this brewery and it created a reasonable impression. Slightly reddish in appearance with a medium head. Some hops are present with a trace of maltiness. Nothing special but quite interesting.

Hand pulled at the Euston Tap, London. Great smell! Smooth, beautifully hopped ale. Drops off on finish, otherwise a delicious, balanced, hoppy, orange, frresh taste. Really good.

This is a delicious beer. We loved the full flavour and ruby red colour. Ideal on a cool evening. We have drunk from both the bottle and the cask. It is a beer that bottles very well.
