Dark amber almost tawny body, at first it tasted good but then as you got into it it was a bit thin, caramel and butter notes and not much else.

Cask. Full bodied nutbrown colour. Limited white creamy head. The beer is very creamy and full bodied.. Aroma is spicy and a weah hops smell seeps through. Taste is bitter from hops with a citric edge. Taste ends on a high note of spices (mostly coriander)

Rather malty, but in a nice way - not malty as in Finnish strong lagers. Easy on the hops, this could have been a five star ale with more bitterness. Still - a nice pint!

Cask at County Hotel JDW, Ashford
Deep copper coloured beer with slight sulphurus nose and some hop with some caramel malt. Good supping beer which I can drink without too much thought, but still enjoy

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask in Ryrie’s, Edinburgh. Not the best example I’ve had - will re-rate when on better form. Cloudy. Aroma slightly stale, yeasty. Not the kind of pub which would welcome the return of my half pint on quality grounds. Drank it quickly and got out. Good pub to go to before a rugby match - but order the Deuchars!

Maybe bias as i tasted it in the brewary on a cellar training course where it tasted beautiful.
The usual cali hoppiness, and fresh seriously seriously fresh, There is a slight burnt malt in there and some fruit aswell but mainly hops.
In my work(wetherspoons - kirky puffer) it doesnt taste as good therefore the rating is not as high as i would, but at the brewary itself, was probably the best pint of cast ale iv ever had.
