3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 10C. Labelled English Red Ale. Red brown with a frothy light beige head. Aroma of caramel, boiled sweets, earth, some fruity tartness. Taste is sweet with light earthy bitterness and a touch tangy (deliberate or not it works OK). Toffee, some chocolate, cherry vinegar, peppery at the end. Not really my sort of thing and could use just a little more oomph, but quite intriguing.

On tap at Josie Bones. It has nice malt and yeast character. Aroma of nuts, grain, cherries, with hints of green apple. Taste is sweet, with sour notes, and average length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Red, with a lacey frothy head.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Archive. Dull red to copper colour with a small white head. Aroma had some sweetness to it but not a lot else, same goes with the flavour. All round it was okay.
