Heaps of bitter hoppiness in this one - but delve deep and the sweetness may still be there. A red ale with summer fruits and hints of tartness.

Gravity, shared with Finn at The National Winter Ales Festival. Warming golden body. Bubbly ring to the rim of the surface. Ripe citrus smell. Malt-fruity flavours of mild dried fruits, bread and caramel. Drying bittersweet end. Satisfying (Derby 19.02.2016).

Cask-conditioned at the Cornubia, Bristol 28/07/2012. Medium brown in colour with a decent, off-white head. Aroma of tart plum fruit, some caramel and a touch of leafy hop. Flavour had more fruit and some sweetish malts, before a long, bitter finish. Ok.
