2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light brown/dark red, small and weak head that recedes quickly. Aroma is fruity (cherry?), slightly nutty, maybe with a hint of earthiness. Taste is mostly sweet with toffee and some fruitiness. A hint of tea-like bitterness in the finish and in the aftertaste. Light to medium body, very light carbonation; smooth and easy, a bit too thin. The overall feeling is good as the beer is very smooth and drinkable; still, not much is going on

Enjoyable, though it does not improve over time, making the bottle a little too big.

Cask @ Marriott Hotel, Durham. It’s a brownish ruby-red ale with a creamy head. It has a bushy sweet berry and floral aroma with a dry and fairly unexciting flavour in this respect.

50cl bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring. A gushing chestnut pour with a billowing light tan head; earthy, nutty aroma; sweet, earthy, malt taste; and a pleasant earthy bitterness before a sweet demerara sugar finish. More an Old Ale than an ESB.
