BeerCast_Rich (1847) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 18, 2011
[cask at Cloisters, Edinburgh] Slightly hazy golden beer with a decent white head. Slightly malty, fruity blackberry aroma – smells a touch like Ribena. Tastes a bit like Ribena too – nothing wrong with that, I guess – although I’ve heard how they make this. Still, that said, a decent and refreshing beer [14102011]

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 12, 2011
On cask at Cloisters. Pours a golden colour with a decent white head. Aroma of RIbena blackcurrant cordial, grassy hops and caramel. Similar flavours of blackberries, Ribena, caramel and alcohol. Mild carbonation with a mildly oily mouth-feel. Also a little bitter. Very nice.

Svesse (6065) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 9, 2011
(Cask at Cask Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico, London, 23 July 2011) Golden colour with brief, white head. Fruity nose with citrus and blackberries. Fruity, slightly harsh taste with notes of blackberries, citrus and a slightly soapy malt character. Gentle bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a certain berry sweetness. Interesting and quite refreshing.

This is a good bitter with an obvious hint of backberries, very nice and very moreish

evergreen0199 (2004) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2011
Cask at Ealing beer festival 2011. A golden coloured pour with a small off white head. Hoppy, fruity aroma. Tastes of blackberries, crisp, slight bitterness, interesting sweetness in a sherbert sort of way. This was rather unusual and very enjoyable.

joe19612 (1839) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2010
Cask at Woking Festival 2010. Pours a golden colour with a thin white head. The aroma is all blackberry with malt in the backgorund. The taste again is all blackberry with a sweet finish. This is my beer of the festival.

Leighton (10772) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2010
Cask at the Market Porter, London. Pours clear gold with a soft, white head. Malt, wheat, grain and blackberry comprise the aroma. Flavor is nice and sweet, lightly syrupy with noticable blackberry notes. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. Has a sweet, fruity finish with very mild, earthy bitterness. Good beer. Nice fruit character that’s not over the top.

downender (6236) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2010
Cask-conditioned at the Bag O’Nails, Bristol 8/4/10. Deep gold with next to no head. Aroma of brambles, sweetish malts and floral hops. Flavour of biscuit malts, a touch of blackberry fruit and a hoppy, dry finish. Not sure that the blackberries added much, but this was a decent beer nonetheless.
