3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ruby red colour, with a white-off white head. Aroma was rich in malt, biscuit, caramel, a hint of coffeee, with a faint hint of hops. Taste was very well balanced, very drinkable. The texture was oily, could have been a bit more on the palate- it felt a little thin. Overall a tasty beer, would buy another.

cask at filmhouse of all places. reasonably well kept translucent ruby beer. slightly creamy. sweet fruits, light spice, gentle nuttiness overwhelmed by a bitter finish. a bit thin. not the worst kelburn ale but I'm still not a huge fan and this isn't doing much to change my mind.
