3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
21st Aug 2016: cask pint in ’Cobblers’ a micro bar in Filey, Yorkshire. Decent looking beer: ruby red body, off-white foaming head. Malts lead the way here, semi-sweet caramel notes throughout form the base for this fruity brew. Good balance between the fruitiness and the maltiness: my sweet tooth liking it from the start.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear red amber color with small off white foam. Aromas are sweet, sugary, caramel fruity and malty but soft, not sharp. Palate, soft and light, watery and thin but at the same time has some body to it. Very low carbonation, in a way completley flat and leaves this small sweet finish which is very pleasant and long lasting. Taste of malt, raisins, figs and bit of smoke. Overall nice beer, very sweet (not usual sweet for me) but enjoyable, very easy going, good beer for conversations, that kind of beer that you dont have to think about it much.
