Brewed to coincide with the climax of the rugby season. Ruck and Roll is a classic 4% abv English style Pale Ale. Amber in colour with a full, yet very dry palate balanced by succulent fruity hops. This is a classic cask conditioned beer with depth, structure and integrity.

Cask handpull at the Cock, Henham. Honey brown. Just a bit hazy. A bit of whitish head on top. Muted aroma of caramel malt, red grape. Fruity bittersweet taste with a well-judged malt/hop balance. A slight metallic edge. This doesn’t hang together quite right although it’s enjoyable enough. Could have done with a half instead of a pint.

Cask at the Red Lion, Hockley. Birmingham. Poured a crystal clear amber with a frothy white head and some clingy lace. The aroma is big zesty tropical fruit. The flavour is moderate to light bitter with a light, smooth citrus, light spicy hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. An excellent session bitter.

A pleasant enough beer which I found lacking a little in powerful flavours. Malty biscuit flavours were nice but didn’t have anything to stand out from the crowd.

Cask conditioned at The Royal Blenheim, Oxford. Amber with white head. This proved to be sweet. malty, biscuity beer, otherwise little to be had. Just ok.

Cask conditioned handpump Wig & Pen Northampton 11/02/13. A copper coloured beer with a whitish head and lace. A decently balanced beer but unexciting. Light berry fruits. A creamy texture. Quaffable but oh so plain.
