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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Cask at Gallows Bird, 20120908) The beer poured dark brown and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had caramell, toffee and malts. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were malts, liquorice, tartness and bitterness. Aftertaste was roasty and bitter. Perhaps this cask had gone bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle, from a potential importer. ABV is 4.2%. Deep copper to chestnut colour (if this beer was a horse, the colour would be called "bay"). Large off-white head. Nice aroma of ripe Nordic fruits and berries, hints of blackcurrant leaves, also notes of toffee, sweet biscuits and caramel malts. The flavour is malty but not too sweet, mild roasty notes, some fruit, also biscuits. Dry and "dusty" English hops in the finish.
