COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Seasonal - Spring/Summer.
A ruby red bitter, made with special coloured malts. A very rich malt character, which gives an impression of a stronger beer than its 4.2% ABV. Made with an American hop variety, the beer is an interesting departure from the norm, demonstrating a wide spectrum of unusual floral flavour notes which appeal to the ale drinker who is looking for something a little more cerebral than the usual session strength style beers. The hop is out there somewhere . . . Originally brewed as a one off, demand has led to permanent production. NOT BOTTLED

tombyars (1328) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - NOV 22, 2013
Tasted this in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in March 2013. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear pale copper in colour with a thin white head. Slight hint of dry hop flowers in the short aroma. Thin mouthfeel and poor lacing. Mixed malts give a moist maltloaf base with dry fruit peel in the mouth. Hop resins impart a spicy peppery note in the short bitter aftertaste. Finish is slightly malty with raisin fruit present but this soon starts to run out of legs towards the end however. An ok session bitter.

UPDATED: MAY 31, 2013 Cask-conditioned at the JDW on Whitehall, 28/5/2013. Attractive, deep copper with a tight, off white head. Toffee, with some red fruits and then not much else until a metallic, bitter finish. Not for me.
