3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy brown with a diminishing white head and lots of carbonation. Aroma is caramel, bread crust, light fruity esters. Taste is light, caramel malt sweetness up front, more caramel and light bitterness in the finish. The carbonation is a bit high, making this feel lighter bodied than it should be.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft - Caramel and toasted malts. As I drink a few of these beers, I notice a distinct yeast quality which may be their house yeast. Clear amber with a rich yellowish head. Toasted malts and some grains with a medium bitterness. Typical English style beer, although not as sweet as I would expect.

On tap at the Henry House. A clear, dark reddish sort of pour with fairly minimal head. Nose of slightly roasty malt and apples. Sweeter on the palate than I would prefer with a woody, fruity malty flavour profile. Very middling stuff.

Low carbonation and an orangy amber glow canít disguise how once this hits your lips its deficient structurally. it may be pure and soft but to be so gentle for a beer which is so named is to stretch the point a bit.

On cask. Very cloudy dark brown, spongy tan head. Aroma is sweet roasted malt, a little toffee and ripe red fruit. Light body, slightly sweet and bready maltiness throughout. Finish is dry and slightly sour. Nice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample at Henry House. Brown/amber colour, little head that is gone quickly. Light, malty aroma. Unique malty taste with a light bitterness. Body was just a touch thin, no carbonation, dry finish. Overall, one of the better Granite brews.

A lot of stuff going on in this beer. Has a touch of caramel, good colour. A beer worth drinking a few times to get to know it better - complex. ON tap at Toronto

This has long been one of my favorite beers. I almost make the annual pilgramage to the east coast just to have this beer! Aromas of dark fruit, plums, with a nice dry feel in the mouth.
