3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at CP&K. It pours clear amber, with a large foamy beige head and soft carbonation. The nose is wood, smoke, orange, nut and some caramel sweetness. The taste is roasted malt, brown bread, wood, smoke, burnt malt, bitter chocolate, nut and astringency, with a long bitter-woody finish. A tasty hoppy red ale.
