Cask and bottle regular;
Our newest beer is a darker, warmer, smoother mouthfeel beer than the other two. It has a red tinge to the colour and is relatively well hopped.

A very dark bitter chestnut in colour and has only a thin film of a head however the sediment in the bottle is very fixed to the base and makes for and easy pouring ale. The flavours and aroma are very similar differing only in intensity, the aroma is a gentle and has a mild citrus and malt tones the flavour is the same however is far more intense, the hop really comes through and creates the bitterness which is slightly weakened by the malt content which leaves a bitter nutty flavour at the finish.
