A ruby red beer with a creamy head, lightly hopped and full of flavour. Rich Ruby has a rich, fruity aroma produced by a combination of crystal and chocolate malts with Nugget, Galena and East Kent Goldings hops.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2010 Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Brown with a small white head. Burnt dough aroma. Delightful sweet, dark, bready malty taste with a faint ashiness. Bit like a date loaf. Lingering bitterness made this a cracker. 2.9.10. Same location Not quite so impressive this time. Toast and straw aroma. Sourness and background malt in the taste. Rated:6,4,6,4,11:3.1

A dark copper red beer with a thick, light brown coloured head. The nose is rich, toasted malt, liquorice, caramel, coffee and dark chocolate. The taste is bittersweet, malty, again liquorice, burnt sugar, a strong coffee element along with a bitter, dark chocolate like flavour. Followed by a lingering, sweet finish. Cask - @ The Fox & Hounds, Heacham, Norfolk).

Cask at the Pembury Tavern, on Friday 5th June 2009. Reddish-brown, crystal clear with an initially fizzy off-white head. Biscuit aroma with some notes of floral hop and clove spice. Slight nuttiness in the kick in which the aforesaid biscuit and clove notes are brought to the tongue; slightly creamy - yet easy drinking mouthfeel. I found the beer to be very pleasant and flavoursome, and with red ales not tending to be my favourites, I was impressed.

Gravity at Birmingham Beer Fest. Nice colouring and an attractive smell. A good Red ale to start the evening. Nice and smooth ruby flavours, with a sweetish finish. A good example of a style I can usually take or leave.

PInt on handpull at The Midnight Bell in Leeds, a very attractive auburn/brown with an off-white head. The aroma is rich malt and woody. Light toasted malt on the palate, along with being rich and fruity. Very enjoyable.
