3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the Wellington, Sheffield on 19th January 2013. Burnished red with buff head and no lace. The brewer knows what I’m talking about :)
Sweetish roastie aroma with hazelnut nuttiness. Fruity , grainy and nutty in-mouth, with plenty of roastiness. Caramel malt dominates finish. Medium body and light mouthfeel.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at The Anchor, Birmingham. Poured a dark brown colour with a broken tan head. The aroma is fruity but a little weak. The flavour is medium to weak bitter with bags of smooth malt and fruit. The palate is lovely and smooth and packed full of flavour. There is even a hint of sourness in the aftertaste. Anyone who appreciates good ale will enjoy this.
