3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
4.4%abv real ale at Deacon Brodies. Pours a deep caramel/ruby with a one finger, creamy head that thins to a thick film but leaves a nice coating. Aroma has nice notes of caramel, toffee, hints of roast, and traditional spicy/earthy hops. Taste is balanced with slight fruity English yeast notes. Sweet caramel, toffee, bread, and a great ending. Medium body with a low-medium carbonation. A touch thin but still creamy with a slightly dry finish. Overall a really nice beer. Caramel, toffee, slight fruity yeast notes, and a great mouth feel.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On cask at Three Tuns, Dronfield - Mahogany body under a low, off-white lacing head. Weak aroma of fruit-like malts. Plain malty initial taste, becoming more fruity and bitter towards the ending. Not too bad.
