3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
First tasted this in Coanes, Johnstone in May 1994. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear garnet red in colour with a thick shaving foamy white head. Strong sweet aroma of glycerine fruit and warm yeasty dough. Smooth creamy texture in the mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts deliver a robust biscuity malt base laden with sweet apple and sultanas. Strong dusty hop resins pack a punch with rich earthy tones to the long bitter aftertaste. Finish is malty and very vinous with dry prunes full in the mouth. A superb bitter when brewed in Oakham and sadly missed.

I found this one really weak and not a big taste to this one, it was drinkable but not much life, it had a strange taste,
