Half pint at the Nags Head in Reading. Nicely hopped grapefruit, bitter, a touch acidic. Fair fruit hop aroma. Nice, but a half pint is enough.

[cask at Cloisters, Edinburgh] Firstly, this beer pours with a lovely colour – ruby and port-like, with a large, cream-coloured head. The aroma is sweet passion fruit, mango, bready malt and pepper – which I wasn’t expecting. I got pepper on the taste too, and had to look it up – seemingly it has paprika added, which certainly explains the colour. The fruity hop combines really well with the pepperyness, which prickles that back of your mouth. There’s sweet caramel malt in there as well – the three elements are blended really very well indeed [19102012]

Cask by handpump at Cloisters, Edinburgh - clear brown, thin off-white head, no bubbles, fruity and sweet malt aroma and flavour, too strong for a session beer but very easy to drink
