3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, thx to fonefan. A clear, copper-colored beer, almost flat, except for some beige cask-like bubbles. Lovely malty nose, with beef-stock, caramel and roasted malt. Dried fruits too. Some alcohol warmth in the mouth, fullbodied, with tastes of caramel, malt and dried fruits. The finish is of the lasting kind, with caramel and beefstock. A quite lovely old ale, but it would benefit from a more pronounced and tasteful flavor. (080823)

Thanks to Phil l for bringing this bottle to the Bricklayers Arms Yorkshire Fest 09. Lovely red fruits, gorgeous, not much carbonation, but lovely strawberry jam. It is very drinkable and quite glorious. Bit sour. Lovely red soft fruits.
