Cask at Kirkstone Pass Inn, Cumbria. Reddish chestnut ale. Unremarkable and watery but has some lingering bitterness. Ok.

tombyars (1589) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - SEP 23, 2014
Tasted this at Strands, Nether Wasdale on the 31st August 2014. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear pale russet in colour with a thin white head. Malty aroma with a hint of dark molasses, short in intensity. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Mixed malts give a fruit loaf base with raisin fruit to the fore. There is a spicy note to the short bitter aftertaste. Finish is malty with a slight hint of prunes, roast grain and dry oak cask flavours present in the mouth. This is a decent session Ruby Ale.

Pigs Ear. Almost clear amber beer, little white head. Light dry palate. Light tangy malt, dried fruit hops. The malts taste fresh but other than that this is just another bitter.
