3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Possibly the best bitter I’ve had, certainly in a long while. It’s hard to move me with this style, this did. Dark copper to brown, medium off white head. Aroma is yeasty, some toffee. Flavour is pretty solid, fair bit of hoppage, powdered chocolate, creamy hoppy finish with medium bitterness. Good beer.

Bottle. Fluffy off-white low but lasting head. Clear dark brown body. Sweet chestnut roasted malt caramel aroma. Mild sweet dried fruits roasted malt caramel flavor with notes of pepper and honey. Low carbonation. Long sweet finish. Quite tasty for a beer with such low alcohol contents.

Fairly standard bitter, pours a brown colour, taste is malty and caramel like. A bit of a disappointment considering how good the other Red Willow beers have been. This isn’t a bad beer, but my expectations were way too high

Cask at Hanging Bat. Pours clear amber brown, good pillowy white head. Nutty, pear drop aroma. Decent taste thought, good bitterness and digestive biscuit sweetness. Creamy texture, long bitter finish. Shame about the nose, otherwise a nice beer.

(Cask at Craft Beer Co Clerkenwell, London, 23 Nov 2013) Reddish amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of caramel, red fruit and hints of chocolate and toffee. Malty taste with red fruit, caramel, toffee, toasty malt and a balanced bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Tasty and well balanced. Quite nice.
