Cask; Regular (formerly Occasional).
A full bodied ruby red ale with subtle chocolate malt character. Inital maltiness leads to citrus, spice and bitterness at the end. A rare Slovenian variety of hop provides both bitter finish and the aroma.

Leighton (11900) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2010
Cask at the Euston Tap. Pours clear amber with a soft, white head. Aroma holds some toasted malts, light berry fruits and some twiggy, earthy hops. Moderately sweet, with faint hints of caramel and toffee, some lightly toasted malts, followed by earth and grass bitters. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly dry, earthen hop finish with off-setting, malty sweetness. Nicely balanced all around. Solid.

Cask, Telegraph Inn, New Brighton. Mid toned copper colour with a thin tan head and some lace. Subdued sweet malt aroma with traces of dog blanket and spice. Flavour had some fruit in evidence and was on the thin side with mild bitterness towards the finish. So so.

Alphadelic (1770) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 25, 2010
A wet barnyard nose gives way to an interesting spicy flavour in the mouth. Intriguing but not necessarily worth a re-go.
