Cask at the Cock Tavern E8. Reddish brown in colour. I’m a big fan of these hoppy red ales, and Howling Hops have smashed it with their versions. Luscious juicy fruit from the hops, berries with a hint of sweetness, cream, a bit of snap, long bitter finish. Splendid.

Pours clear amber with thick white head. Nose are herbal hops. Aromas are grassy hops, toasted malts, white flowers, citrusy notes. Dry mouthfeel, very bitter in taste. Low carbonation, light body. Long bitter and grassy finish. Aromas aren’t very interesting despite the use of a citra and galaxy, but honorable ESB anyway.
