Leighton (17210) - 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 (7627) - 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.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2009
Cask, Tynemouth BF. Wow! A really grassy aroma leads into a fantastic mix of pale hoppiness and superb fruity complexity. The blackberry is subtle, but it lingers and gets all over the tastebuds and lasts long into the finish. Reminded me of fizzy childhood sweets. Delicious!
