4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A beautiful bright amber appearance with a lovely fruity nose. An initial red berry fruit flavour is followed by a butterscotch middle and a superb long caramel malt finish balanced out with a nice hop background. A great traditiional british ale with a great appearance and branding. Lets get some younger people drinking cask ales!!

Bottle shared at a tasting at Ben’s place. Thanks Rotem for this bottle! Clear amber. Aroma of malt, some floral and fruity hops, a bit skunky, and a bit of butter. Sweet flavor with malt, a bit of caramel, and bitterish floral hops, slightly skunky. Light to medium-bodied.

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2016 One of the better bitters I have had from cask. Flat palate as expected from cask, but a nice taste and very little aroma to be detected. Is the name also a Pere Ubu reference by chance?
