jd543 (404) - SCOTLAND - MAY 31, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2013 Re-rate 21/09/2013, Dark red/brown, with a medium off-white head. Dark fruit, caramel malt. Sweet with a light bitter finish. Smooth texture, light carbonation. Think I was a bit harsh on this last time, I really enjoyed this pint. 6-4-6-4-12 = 3.2. Deep red/orange colour. Slight sweet taste, dark fruit, mild bitterness. Creamy texture. Ok but not that exciting. 4-3-5-3-9 = 2.4, 31/5/2013.
