Grain and intense cereal malts, dust, straw. Hazy, dark brown, small, creamy, beige head. Light bitter. Bitters continue and intensify, grain and cereal malts, some floral and grassy hops. OK Bitter, nothing too spectacular though. Pint at The famous Royal Navy Volunteer, Bristol.

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.
