A copper coloured, fruity, summer ale packed full of flavour. Blackberry, strawberry and floral rose notes in perfect balance with just the right amount of malt character. A refreshing summer thirst quencher, it’s fruit salad in a glass.

Cask conditioned at The Flowerpots, Derby. Copper with white head. Perfumed, flowery, fruity beer, a bit of a struggle to be honest. Heavy blossomy fruit notes just dominate throughout.

Hand-pulled cask ale at Exeter Arms. Half pint. Fragile lacing from a thin white head. Bright amber coloured body. Brown malty nose with a touch of dried fruits. Mixed taste of leafy hops, orange, and toffee. Bitter malt-fruity finish. True to the style. Drinks well (Derby 22.02.2015).

On cask at Victoria Lounge Bar, Hanley. Pours golden amber with white froth. A decent enough bitter with an added hint of citrus. A little strange but decent enough.
