CharlieTwoPies (12) - United Kingdom, - APR 11, 2014
Gravity pour Yeovil beer fesdtival. Very dark red/dark brown, good but thin head which dies relatively quickly. Aroma of unripe plums, raisins, brown malt, and caramel. Very well balanced taste with a touch of burnt bitterness balancing the very, very slight caramel and ripe berry sweetness. Leaves a full juicy feel behind; very nice

nulptr (97) - SCOTLAND - SEP 18, 2013
cask at Bennets. not sure how to rate this. very deep red, more brown, almost looks like a porter. not getting any citrus here - smoky, meaty flavour with a slight bitter finish. yeast and bread in the nose. not a bad pint but not at all what I was expecting.

tombyars (1316) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 1, 2012
Tasted this at the Troon Beer Festival in September 2004. Cask, gravity dispense. Clear ruby red in colour with a thin white head. Slight roast grain note in the short aroma. Thin but creamy mouthfeel and good lacing. Mixed malts give a rich digestive biscuit base with tart redcurrant fruit and roasted malt in the mouth. Dry spicy hop resins give a long aftertaste with no astringency. Finish is again dry with woody briar notes and a walnut flavour coming through. A decent Ruby Ale and worth trying.
