Taster from bottle at Binnyís, Downers Grove. Fruity smell, nice amber color, a bit cloudy. Large bit of foam from this tiny sample. Taste again is fruity. Very nice, about all I can say about it. Excellent version of this style, why Iím rating it up.

Bottled 500ml (AbM)
Clear copper color, small off-white head. Aroma has odd cellary hops with hints of crystal malts. Light-bodied. Flavor is also on heavy earthy hoppy side with back crystal malts although not really sweet. 3.8% is not a problem. Odd.

500ml . In a pint . One of the last beers from a gift pack that Uncle Steve got me @ Christmas . Brown Bitter customary colour . Spicy hop nose , malty rich caramel, cake notes . Quite well balanced in textures . This ainít the type of beer Iíd buy myself , and its obviously going to score higher if Cask , but not a bad bottled ale .

Cask at Six Bells, Cambridge. Tawny/copper. Fairly flat. Nice earthy/doughy smell. The taste isnít so balanced: herby bitter turning to a sour/sweet in the finish. Iíve had this many a time in my pre-RB days. Not convinced it travels so well.
