[Pint, J.D.W. Cuthbert Brodrick - Leeds, 07/01/10] Good looking dark ruby red colour in the glass. Nose indistinct with notes of caramel malts. Flavour much better; juicy, fruity malts, caramel, perhaps toffee. Alcohol makes its presence known in a pleasant, warming way. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Medium to full bodied. A good, well rounded beer.

Handsome pour, a rich brown body with ruby highlights and a creamy beige head. The aroma is malty with molasses, fresh apple skins, and just a hint of earthy bitterness. A sweet malty drink, caramel mostly, with molasses and fruit and a light nuttiness. Very nicely blended and quite drinkable.
