Cask; Regular.
Note: The recipe for this beer changed in 2012 - different ABV and different hops.
Delicious ruby red ale with masses of Columbus hops giving a spicy flavour and finish. The bold fruitiness of this ale will surprise the uninitiated but you’ll be back for more!

Cask Handpump at the Smithfield Hotel, Manchester 19/01/2011 Fruit and malt aromas. Amber red coloured a little rich on the palate and strong in alcohol with a hint of dryness in a slightly earthy peppery and bitter malt finish.

Cask at The Smithfield, Manchester 20.01.11 Pours amber this is very hazy with a white head, not in particularly good nick. Slightly strange aroma, bit smoky with some blocked sink not great at all. Taste is a touch smoky, fuzzy bitterness, not great however I think this may have a lot to do with how it has been kept, left half of this beer. Both of these beers at The Smithfield were quite a come down from what we’d just had at the Marble Arch. A3 A2 T6 P3 Ov8 2.2
