Caution, one too many may cause you to talk Shite. It combines a chewy malt forward mouth feel balanced by a moderate hopping rate delivered by challenger golding and fuggles hops. Dangerously Quaffable at 38 IBU, Beer to savor over a good conversation.

From growler. Pour is dark ruby red with no head. Nose is faint, green apple skin, light caramel malt, and some dark berry sweetness. Taste has more malt presence, chewy feel, a bit of nuttiness and some sweet caramel. Hints of green apple skin and a touch of plum. Very light carbonation, crisp finish.

On cask at the brewery - dry hopped with Golding. Deep amber with a big cream head and grey lacing. Floral, orange, somewhat grassy, doughy, biscuity, bready, somewhat toasty, and honey in the aroma. Taste is grassy, light roast, honeycomb, doughy, grapefruit peel, bread, and light lemons. Medium body with soft carbonation. Good stuff.
