Cask handpull at The Ale House, Chelmsford. Ruby red/brown colour with a small white head. Malt chocolate evident, mixed with citrus and somewhat too bitter. I found this beer a little too muddled for my liking.

Cask at the Red Lion in the Jewelery Quarter, Birmingham. Reddish brown clear pour with a thin white frothy head. A hint of spicy hops in the aroma which pretty much dominates the flavour too. I'm not a fan of red ales, but this example was more than drinkable by virtue of its spicy liqourice palate.
