Cask, Regular;
An auburn beer with rich complex flavours and a deep red glow. The sweet maltiness is balanced with spicy hop aromas and a dry finish. Definitely a pint to savour.

Cask at the Rose and Crown, Sandhurst. Chestnut with a scummy cream head; malty aroma with some orange fruit; silky in the mouth, with a sweet caramel malt taste; and some spicy toffee and warmth to the finish. Satisfying.

Reddish brown, clear ale with a sweet aroma. It has an acute strong taste that lingers. Although there’s some in the nose there’s no real fruits in its flavour. No head.
