Cask JDW Carlisle. Yep, itís very bright. Clean tasting, citrus notes, zesty tangy palate, gets better with progress. Soft pleasant finish.

stravale (2234) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JAN 30, 2014
Cask @ Linen Hall, Enniskillen [311213]
Artificial reddish orange, clear, dense white head
Aroma of light soft fruits, soft berries
Taste of soft fruits, touch of orange(?), slightly sour
Palate - Light body, bit sticky. Finish as main flavour, slight cereal
Overall - Not impressed with this, dull, looks like Tizer, had no idea it had raspberries and cinnamon in it until now

tombyars (1400) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JAN 20, 2014
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) on 19th January 2014. Cask, handpump dispense. Opaque russet in colour with a thin white head. Short note of dried tea leaves in the mild aroma. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Mixed malts give a fruitloaf base with sweet tangerine present but not getting the rasberries nor the cinnamon. Wheaty, cereal flavour to the short bitter aftertaste. Finish has a weak malty flavour with tea tannins again present. This beer reminded me of a weak version of Timothy Taylorís Ram Tam. An ok session Fruit Beer but nothing exceptional to note though.

mighty_meadow (233) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - JAN 16, 2014
Unique reddish-pink colour with white head. Apart from that there was really nothing remarkable about this one. Tasted at the Salt Cot (JD Wetherspoon, Saltcoats, North Ayrshire)

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2014
Cask conditioned handpump Moon On The Square Northampton 02/01/14. A pinky red coloured beer with a whitish head. A light berry fruity beer. Nicely drinkable and but for the raspberry cordial element, a drinkable golden. Absolutely no cinnamon at all as others have commented. A grassy nose. Tasty of light.

mike_77 (3327) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - DEC 30, 2013
Glow in the dark red-orange colour. Aroma of fruity hops and wood. Quite a sweet taste with a hint of glace cherry. Luckily no cinnamon was detectable.

niquillis (1088) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2013
On cask at the wheatsheaf (jdw), cheadle. Pours ruby red with light pink head! A watery session ale, meh!

imdownthepub (10577) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2013
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Reddish amber with light pink head. This proved to be a thin beer, light metallic malt with a dose of sweet raspberry syrup and a boiled herby note. Otherwise a bit of a nonentity. Weird.

dynamiteninja (1561) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2013
Cask at the Ralph Fitz Randal (JDW), Richmond. Medium pink head with good lacing. Orange-red-pink body. Nose is initially muted, but then comes hops, red fruit, weak spice, sherbet, strawberry, red apple. Sweetish with some tang. Dry finish.

BlackHaddock (4025) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2013
Raspberries and Cinnamon in this beer. Taken in my local Wetherspoons on 6th Dec 13. The Raspberries certainly give the beer a red body, or some other additive has because this is really, really red and the head a pink covering. The head actually gave some lacing on my hand-pulled half-pint. It had a taste and aroma of berries, didnít pick up any of the supposed Cinnamon at all. Different because of itís colour and very fruity taste, glad I only had a half-pint though. The body was quite thin and although it wasnít like a watered down fruit juice concentrate it wasnít far off either. Having said that, I enjoyed it in a perverse sort of way.
