3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home, cask at Sheffield Tap 20/07/11. Hoppy amber ale? Get in there! It’s an almost-there beer; caramel is spiked with slight spice, finish is dry and not cloying, flavours assertive and not clashing, hops prominent but not dominant.
Just up everything another notch on the dial, lads, and you’ve got an amber that everyone will want to clone.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Borefts Beer Festival 2014. Pours a clear reddish amber with a big, off white head. Aroma is pretty fruity with cranberries and some weed, red berries, pine and hops. Taste is smooth, gentle hop bitterness, hop fruity, again some sweet, ripe, dark red berries. Pretty nice, but fairly low carbonation. Smooth body despite the low abv.
