Draft. Average carbonation with hoppy aroma. Very well finished beer, not overly hoppy or bitter. Very smooth. Clean finish. Will definitely buy again.

Draft at Cooke’s seafood on vacation. Pour has a mostly brown color with a bit of red highlights. Aroma has malts, light hops, and light bitterness. Mouth feel is medium light with good carbonation. Flavor is typical red malt, decent dose of hops, and a clean finish with light bitterness.

Leighton (9855) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2012
Cask at GBBF 2012, London. Pours clear amber with a weak, white foam head. Crisp, dry caramel nose. Light to medium sweet flavor with grapes and light toffee. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly piney to finish, faintly resinous, with light caramel and ripe citrus. Yeah, it’s alright.

GBBF. Hazy amber beer with a few tan bubbles for a head. Palate is quite and dry and a little crisp from the mild fine carbonation. Mild juicy dried fruits, whisper of red berries. Fresh hop spice. All flavours in good balance. Fresh and fruity.

Phatman (176) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 25, 2012
From Growler. Deep amber color, head dependant on pourers skill. Aroma of cherrys some malt. Flavor is a little bland to begin with but leads into a fine bitterness from the hops that is super sessionable.

Cask @ GBBF ’12. Pours deep amber with no head. The nose is sweet cherry, some toffee and toasted bread. The taste is light grassy hops, berry fruits and balancing toasty bread. Medium body. Simple, OK.
