Deepish amber in colour, but no head whatsoever! Lovely malty/fruity nose. Slightly malty sweet with an underlying bitterness which increases on the finish. Waitrose, Ponteland.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Bath Waitrose, not BC. Thank fuck for that. Iced tea amber with a fine, uneven off white head. Aroma somewhere between overripe strawberry and orange, warming into caramel sauce, Crunchie..vegetables. Caramel and orange, hazelnut, bit of a stale leafy/plastic note in the aftertaste like gnawing an old watering can. A pity. Enough quality to suggest the cask version is a really decent beer.

Great caramel aromas paired with lingering hops and hints of fruit make this a complex but approachable ale. Containing suggestions of honey and a variety of tickly spices there is a lot to admire here. Its finish is really something to behold! An amazing savoury bite has me hankering for more of the great oily feel that washes over your tongue. Sublime.
