On Tap at C’est What? Amber pour with a fluffy head. NIce aroma of brown sugar, and some bready malt with a touch of grassiness. Flavor is quite one dimensional with the sweet malt,and more of the brown sugar, a nice beer, quite drinkable, i could easily down a few.

Cask @ Victory Cafe Winter Fest.
Aroma has lots of malt(candied?) cloudy copper, tiny toffee head. Flavour has less malt than the nose, toasty notes, light bodied, balanced, fairly easy to drink. Good.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Has a really coffee-like smells. Pours with no head, no lacing. Very soft carbonation - almost nothing. Ruby colour. The coffee bitter lasts a little into the taste. There’s some sugary cane sweetness too. On tap at Volos.

A lot of sediment, big chunks of dead yeast. A deep cloudy red colour. Pours with alright suds and lacing. Smells a little oaky and a little smoky. Taste follows through a little bit sour, kind of lagery. I think the whole glory of this one is that it’s on cask - not sure how it would hold up on tap but the cask gives it some character. Had pint at The Rhino.
