Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A deep brown to black colour with a medium tan head. Aroma of red berries, fruit loaf, some spice, subtle roasted malts and a hint of marzipan. Taste of raisin, prune, red berries, bready malts and spicy hops. Light bodied and a slick texture. A dry, fruity finish. For a 3.8% mild, it’s got decent body and flavour. Highly recommended.

Bottle courtesey of Ellen and Malcolm. Thanks! Pours a deep ruby colour with a good tan head. This is quite a light tasting brew with red fruits and surprisingly little in the way of roast malt flavour coming through. there’s something a touch home-brew about it. Perhaps some yeasty aromas. Nice enough and drinkable, but lacks body and depth of flavour.
