Bottle at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A murky deep amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of caramel, red berries, pine, strawberry jam and floral hops. Taste of red berries, strawberry, caramel, a hint of chocolate, resin, grapefruit and floral hops. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A dry but fruity finish with some resinous bitterness at the end. Tasted like a Dime bar at first and then a splash of strawberry and berry jam, also citrus and resinous bitterness running through it. A well made amber ale, enjoyed it.

Gravity cask at the Cambridge Beer Festival 2015. Amber/copper, a bit cloudy. Light aroma with toast, red berry and a hint of pine. The taste though. Wow. Intensely resinous, a sweet spicy hop bomb augmented by the sweet spiciness of the rye. Long, oily, piney finish. Lovely.
