[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.
