A lively light chestnut bitter from fyne ales. This ale is not particularly strong, but is a pleasant drink, with a light cream to tan head this beer is a simple dark bitter. It has a subtle fruity aroma but is overpowered by malt and hop. Unfortunately the fruit has no role in the beer but the hops and malts compliment each other very well to make an overall good bitter.

Cask at Three Tuns, Dronfield - Ruby colour with your standard bitter head. Light slightly floral nose, some brown sugar. The taste is very much of a classic bitter. Some caramel, nuttiness. A bit rustic, nice dry finish. This pint plays it straight as a bitter, though that’s not a bad thing. it was very well put together.

A dark, reddish beer with a thick off-white head and a fruity aroma. A malty flavour with a fruity edge but quite light and refreshing with it.
