Cask, Philarmonic, Liverpool. Pinkish amber looks with a medium white head. The Cherry factor was a bit on the muted side in the nose and flavour, with some light malt character alongside the fruit. Dried out towards the finish. Easy drinking and inoffensive stuff.

imdownthepub (11374) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2014
Cask conditioned at The Chequers Inn, Oxford. Pinkish amber with white head. The aroma is certainly cherry, this foolows into the flavour, there is a sweet, largely artificial cherry flavour, perhaps a little cloying but actually quite reasonable. Late bitterness. Itís fine.

ManVsBeer (5800) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2014
Cask @ Duke of Wellington, Halifax. Pours a pink colour but settles clear amber, has a small creamy head. Thereís certainly some cherry in both its aroma and flavour, but no more than a smattering. Light session style bitter.

Cask ale to pint glass Honestly the cherry aroma is all I get. Itís a cloudy pinkish amber with a thin creamy white head. Cherry, wheat, plum, and skunk.

allmyvinyl (6297) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 25, 2014
Cask at The Old White Swan, York. Pours hazy pink, thin white head. Light citrus, malt and cherry aromas. Stronger cherry on the taste, but a little light overall. OK.

Pint at Henry Addington canary wharf. Hazed attractive pinkish orange coloured pour with a lasting light pink head. Aroma is light tart, grainy, some berry fruits. Flavour is grainstore some tanin and medium sweet cherry fruit. Slightly artificial tasting fruit content. Middle of the road.

AshtonMcCobb (3906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2014
On cask at the Haymarket Appearance -golden with a nice head. Nose - very faint cherry but mainly a lemon and malt. Taste - more of the same. The cherry sits nicely with the pale ale characteristics. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - good and interesting ale.
