3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at the excellent Friendship, Fallowfield, Manchester. One of Hydesí Seasonals and will probably be retired by the time anyone reads this, if they ever do... Dark amber colour with a white head that lasts through the pint. Malt aroma with slight fruit overtones. the aroma is reflected in the taste with the addition of an excellent dry finish. Fuller palate than 4.5 ABV would suggest. As itís a limited-time product, the consistency is not there so, occasionally, thereís the bad pint but overall itís yet another great Hydes beer.

Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. One of the ’Creature Comforts’ series. Amber with a small white head. Wet dog malt aroma. Full malty taste with fruit and a bitter finish. Very flavourful and rather delicious.
