Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Leicester BF. An amber coloured beer with a pillowy off-white head. The aroma is malty and potently alcoholic, but seems a little underdeveloped. The taste is warming and fruity. Cakey, malty and alcoholic. Smooth, thick, vinuous and alcoholic. Some strawberry flavours to boot. Very smooth and tasty

A Sim rate (RBESG tasting): Complex aroma that’s sweet, wheaty, hoppy and very nice. Amber colour with nice lacing. Tastes like heather, and various other herbs. Hops again and a bit of yeast.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500mL bottle with a very ugly label! Hazy apricot coloured ale with a lasting off-white head. Heady and rather musty nose holds at the same time lots of alcohol and lots of esters (peach and banana fruitiness). Considerable leafy and earthy hops never manage to overtake the strong alcohol nor the oxidized feel of musty, cobwebby attacks. Poor.

Bottle thanks to Ian, rbesg07. My last beer of the tasting. Alround yeasty and very sweet, infact the fruity yeasty character got in the way.

Bottle, RBESG 07.
Sweet, warming beer - the warmind due to the alcohol. Some fruit, but dominated by the treacle from the malt.
