UPDATED: FEB 11, 2014 Cask @ Gallows Bird RAF 2013. Pours dark orange amber. Aroma is caramel, light marzipan, sweet malts. Taste is quite sweet again with caramel malts dominating. Some pineish hops trying to make an appearance. Full palate. Ridgeway doesn’t really do these strong ones well.

Bottle, 2012 vintage from wicked wine privatimport "vintagelåda 1". Sweet caramel and hoppy aroma.alcohol. Bitter, yet fresh taste. Long sweet finish. Expecting more complexity from the ABV, but still a nice straight forward BW.

Maris (1229) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JAN 5, 2015
from a 330ml bottle on 5/1/2015. Pours a murky reddy brown with the brest of heads. Has a nice strong sweet toffee malt aroma. Take a sip and you get more sweet toffee, caramel, golden syrup, as well as some tart fruity booziness, finishing with a medium dry lingering bitterness. The palate is a little oily and the carbonation soft. Does present more as a barley wine than a red ale, but regardless, it’s a very pleasant and moreish sipper. I’m quite surprised this is not rated more highly on here.
