Cask@Twickenham BF. Had it under the name íRed Diamondí. Quite bitter stuff. Quite dry and grainy. There is a touch of sticky toffee, but quickly dries out with a woody, earthy hops bitterness. Slightly burnt, tea-like flavours. A bit salty. Pretty nice.

Cask conditioned at Twickenham beer festival 2004, day 2. The beer I was most eager to try. I travelled on the first day to Twickenham, meeting up with Chris_o and Duff. Despite promises of no beers being kept back and being told when we got there it would be on later that night, it did not materialise. So I returned with Duff the following day, to try a few more beers. This is the one I wanted to try the most.

Poured brown, with not too much in the way of a head. Aroma is typical Fullerís and typical cask Fullerís ESB, very nice. The beer itself is different to the regular ESB, still a strong, fruity and sweetish bitter, but this is hoppier & drier. The alcohol is more apparent also, but itís not anywhere close to being overpowering.
