Cask at the Goose, Bracknell. Copper with a tight cream head; sour cherry aroma; soft in the mouth with a cherry taste and malty body; then a touch of spice leading to a fruity cherry finish. Not too sweet overall, and rather good (if you like cherries).

Cask gravity at Kent & East Sussex Railway BF 2016. Dark brown red mahogany colour lasting beige head. Cherry chocolate aroma. Bit thin in the mouth. Some dark cherry flavour. Hmm. Not sweet but the fruit is a little artificial maybe not totally integrated. Not great.

Cask at Stockbridge Tap. Pours deep brown. Lovely creamy tan head. Big cherry and malts aroma. Pretty full on cherry flavours. Strangely I quite like this though. Works well with the malty backbone. Creamy and pudding like, though not that sweet. Certainly a novelty beer and a bit weird. That said, I’m enjoying it.

Cask at the Cambridge Blue. Reddish brown, clear, really flat. Cherry aroma with a hint of chocolate malt. A little bit of plastic. Sweet taste with a surprisingly astringent artificial finish. Watery body. Meh.

Tastes almost exactly like blackforest gateaux - cherries, dark chocolate. A bit synthetic tasting. Cloying sweetness quickly gives way to a strange unmalty bitterness. Bizarre

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at the Claret. It pours clear deep brown with a small, bubbly beige head. The nose is soft, sweet cherry, perfumed, cherry drops, slightly artificial and tangy boiled sweets. The taste is bitter, earthy, mild astringency, cherry skin, cherry drops, woody, light spice, slightly medicinal notes. Finish is earthy and dry. Medium body and soft carbonation. Quite a disconnect between aroma and taste. The former sweet, the latter bitter. Better than expected, but not overly drinkable.
