MartinT (9369) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2016
My Bottom Line:
This slender Bitter develops earthy, floral and citrusy connotations over lightly toasted malts.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A frothy head of foam dissipates into the shiny amber haze.
-The flavour profile is balanced.
-Mouthfeel is on the dry side for the style, perhaps lacking a little roundness or softness at that level.
-The ending bitterness accentuates the earthy character.

BeerViking (4141) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2015
Cask at the Magpie, attractive deep red-brown with a clinging head, light aromas of carob and currant leaves. A little red fruit and some faintly honeyed malt, plus a herbal bitterness, doesn’t make me want another though.

Cask @ The Crooked Billet (E5) Deep amber with an ivory head. toasty, light spice, caramel and dried fruit on the nose. More toast, caramel, sultanas modest spice, and a dry finish. Medium to full body. I liked it, a nice autumnal/winter crossover beer
