Cask at the Sun. Lancaster. Reddish copper/brown with a sizeable off-white head. Malt aroma with a hint if berry. Straightforward bitter taste with an assertion of sweetness from the heavy malt. Ok, but I wish it was more exciting.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This ruby ale is a good session bitter ale filled with hop and malt flavours, a benefit of this style. The malts play a key feature in the aroma of this beer, biscuits and nuts are detectable to the nose and the hop brings a citrus bitter flavour to the table. The blend of the two is well planned and reduces the bitterness of the hops but still leaves some zing to keep you interested. A good session ale, slightly strong.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
