Cask @ Tilleys, Newcastle. Deep copper color with a modest off-white head. The nose is red apple, caramel, biscuit, and general sweetness. Faint aromas. The taste is dominated by chewy malts. Plenty of caramel and shortbread. Light red fruits and apple. Light grassiness on the finish. Smooth body, very soft carbonation. Overall, pretty decent. A straightforward number.
