3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From cask @ CASK Pub & Kitchen, London. This is a glowing blurry burgundy-red beer with a medium sized off-white head. It has a light malty and fruity aroma. I get tones of caramel , chocolate malts and dried fruits. Quite a nice little aroma. It’s soft on the old CO2, and it feels mildly oily in the mouth. The taste is also malty and caramel-fruity. Some ripe red apple-bitterness in the background blended with a drop of peach. Tasty and quite enjoyable. 22.07.2012

Orange peel. Tinned grapefruit. Smells great. Taste is moderately bitter. Some spicy dryness. Clean palate. Finishes light bitter, with a soft dry close.

keg- belgrave music hall, sheffield. not usually a fan of the style but thought why not. Tangy dried flowers and herbs on the nose and a zippy, light mouthfeel. Hint of crushed biscuity malt character that is swiftly extinguished by drying, chalky hops and a lingering bitterness. good.
