Cask at the Craft. Clear amber beer, little white head. Smooth palate, semi dry. A little toffee in the malt which has some dark character. Nice hops, juicy and fresh - red berry fruits and jiucy orange marmalade. Semi dry finish. Decent.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned Air Pressure Euston Tap London. A classic brown coloured beer with a white head and lacing. A big beer for its ABV. Lots of hops plentiful malts and a big body. Fruity hops. Hints of chocolate and coffee. Almost too complex and actually quite chewy. The hops in the nose though are particularly good.

Half pint shared by Finn at NWAF ’13. Deep mahogany coloured body. Fruity nose nicely added by brittle caramel. Blended taste character of juicy and caramel malts. Good bitter support to the aftertaste. Nice and clean. One of my best at the festival (Manchester, 23.01.2013).

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Coppery....well, amber with a slim cream head. Quite a nose, wafting with all manner of lychee, grapefuit, grenadine and perfumed hop exoticism over a sweet caramel and cinder toffee-accented base. Perfumed, bittersweet and balanced with breakfast juice hop, well-squeezed tea, blackcurrant and lean husky malt notes. If only all American ambers were as good.
