COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular. Also available bottled.
Lancaster Red is a premium strength, ruby red beer, fired by plentiful amounts of Goldings and First Gold hops to give a wonderfully spicy but sweet fragrance. Using a blend of Maris Otter, Crystal and Dark Crystal malts, Red offers a robust malt-dominated body finished with a splendid bitter note. Red is an impact bitter designed to leave a lasting impression both visually and on the taste buds." Robust ale with a malt dominated body.

Cask at the Magpie, pours a dark red-brown with a fast-settling head, chocolate and a little red wine aroma, palate is initially lightly sweet, fruity and malty, but then a rather unpleasant acrid bitterness sets in, along with a dry woodiness. A bit odd.

bottle - Pours red and is filled with big suspended yeast particles. There’s minimal head. The aroma is heavy on the caramel. It tastes of sweet caramel malt and a touch of hops bitterness. Easy drinking and smooth on the palate, it’s an okay if uninspired brew.
