Gravity @ the kings head Leicester. Dark golden beer. Disappointingly un blackberry-y. Bitter taste but just OK.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2013 On cask at White Star, Stoke. Pours red brown, blackberry nose is there. Quite bitter and then the blackberry smooths it out. Decent.
Tried again 17/12/13 @ Congress, Longton. My opinion does not differ from my 1st try.

Cask at CP&K. It pours clear amber with a small off-white head. The nose is soft fruitiness, berry, raspberry ice-cream and fruit syrup. The taste is straw, bitter pine, light berry, Ribena, pepper and some citrus with a dry, bitter finish. Fruit is well-integrated and not over-done. Nice fruitiness, decent bitterness and easy drinking.

Cask @ CPK. The pourís a medium gold color with a tight, creamy head. The aromaís of soft blackberry jam sweetness. Light lemon peel. Floral countryside. The taste is bright floral hop. Light pale malts, hints of citrus. Just a touch of raspberry ripple and blackberry. Light body, fine carbonation. This is on great form. Overall, a really nice beer. Understated.
