Cask, The Salmon, Leicester. Very dark brown with a beige foam. Aromas are dark chocolate and liquorice with pepper. Hints of soy sauce with dark berry fruit. Xmas pudding with earthy roast notes and hints of marzipan. Flavours are plummy sweet xmas pudding with dark cherries and berries. Earthy with some citrus tang. Medicinal with a solid roast backbone. Very nice.

Cask at the Jolly Crispin during the RateBeer Black Country Bus Bash. Pours clear amber with a creamy, light tan head. Toasty bread aroma with hints of sugary fruits, ripe berries. Medium sweet flavor with brown bread, more ripe berries, some dark fruits. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish with bready semi-dark malts and lots of ripe, sugary fruits. Nice stuff.

jackl (4596) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Cask @ The Jolly Crispin during the Ratebeer Black Country Bash. Yes! A beer that isnít a golden ale!!!! The pourís deep red with a tiny off-white head. The nose is red berry, marzipan. A bit of nut, cake mix. The taste is rich toffee, caramel. Acidic red apple, berry compote. Coke. Medium body, smooth, slightly creamy. Overall, pleasing work. A nice change of pace on this occasion.

BlackHaddock (3763) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2013
Half-pint of cask at the Jolly Crispin while on the RB Black Country Bash 6th July 2013. Good looking brew, Ruby coloured with a full and rich light tan foaming head. Nose was chocolate malts and dark fruits. The taste was also chocolate and dark fruits with other malty notes like caramel and toffee. It wasnít however as sweet as those flavours might indicate: there was a bitter hop undertone throughout the half-pint. My favourite new cask ale of the day: my sweet tooth really enjoyed this and I thought it different and almost on par with another Ruby Mild brewed just up the road!

Cask conditioned at The Jolly Crispin, Upper Gornal, W.Midlands. Chestnut with off white head. There is a solid, malty body, good roasty notes with a hint of smokiness for me. There is a fruity, berry like flavour within the body. A pretty accomplished mild.
