Bottle. Red copper ale with a thin tan head. Rich malty nose like sweet cereal. Maltesers in the mouth, a bit of chocolate, a bit of cereal, some honeycomb. Smooth, sweet taste.

larsga (7313) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 23, 2013
Medium beige head. Clear brown body. Earthy caramelly aroma with sugary notes. Dry-sweet earthy roasty taste with spicy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild mouthfeel. Dryish grainy caramelly aftertaste with spicy notes. It’s ok, but the flavours are kind of harsh, and there isn’t enough of them. (0.5l bottle, from Clarkes, Whitby.)

There was a clear caramel and hoppiness to this beer. It is a smooth bitter which turns more bitter as it stands, on pouring there is a rich creamy head which remains until finished. The roasted grains make for a pleasant ale, definitely for the dark beer lover. It’s a good session beer, not overly strong but full of flavour!

Kieran_Bowden (1) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2013 does not count
This is a crystal clear, 4%, oak brown beer, with a caramel aroma and a smooth hoppy, bitter taste, becoming more bitter with a flavour of roasted grains. It is a pleasant ale, perfect for those who like a darker beer. On pouring there is only a very small cream head which fades quickly but continues to be lively on the tongue. A good take on an Irish Ale.

niquillis (2344) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2012
On cask at white swan, Stokesley. Pours red brown with white head, looks the part. Fairly uninteresting red ale, a slight hint of spice. Very average ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask conditioned handpump Whitelocks Leeds 25/07/12. A dark brown to ruby coloured beer with a tight white head. A dry and malty beer. A bit woody. Low on hops but true to style. Plainish but quaffable.
