A rich fruit and amber ale with succulent Californian raisins. Choicest hops give depth, density and complexity.

Bottle from the Brewey tap, Cains Brewery. I can understand why this may not be to everyones taste, but I found this to be a great beer. Pours darkish ruddy amber. Raisins clearly evident in the aroma. Taste is full bodied, sweet for sure but not overpoweringly so. There is a really refreshing tang about this which gives way to a crisp lingering dry finish. Recommended la.

Bottle bought whilst visiting friends in the Wirral. Amber beer with medium frothy head. Aroma of plums. The taste is sweet plums not much raisin. Quite dry in the aftertaste. An OK beer.

50 cl bottle at Dispensary pub, Liverpool. Amber color, big fuzzy head. Aroma is dark fruit and hops. Flavor is fruity, most of all raisin, nice sweetness and hops, but a bit watery. Very drinkable.

BeerCast_Rich (1879) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 13, 2011
[500ml bottle, Booth’s, Preston] Deep ruby red colour with decent white head. Unsurprisingly the prime aroma is raisin, and the prime flavour likewise. There’s a touch of prune juice in there as well. Can’t really taste much hop – mostly juicy red fruit from start to finish. Depends if you like raisins or not, which I actually do [01082007]

joe19612 (1847) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2011
Bottle. Deep golden to copper colour, moderate white head. Fruity aroma with distinct notes of raisins and grape juice. The flavour is a fairly nice blend of malts and raisins, not too sweet, with moderate hops in the finish and aftertaste.

worldbeertaste (1637) - AUSTRIA - FEB 19, 2012
Deep dark copper colour with a slightly soapy somewhat lasting white thin head. Smells of bitter malt, grape Crush and hops. Slightly chemically.. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. Sweet caramel malt start and a bittersweet fuity finish. Tastes like someone poured grape Crush into by bitter. Lightly toasted with sweet rasin. Smooth but a little heavy.

dynamiteninja (1511) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2010
Bottle. Aroma is overwhelmingly Californian raisins. Some citrusy-piney hop aroma too. Bubbles line the glass. Off white head that quickly disappears.Clear amber coloured beer. Medium bitterness with sweet notes. Lively carbonation, a bit of a nasty after taste.
