3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask (Tram Depot, Cambridge)
Dark mahogany, maybe even dark cherry, colour. Very interesting aroma - a nice dark beer, and cherry is subtle. Full in the mouth, some of which is just from sweetness, but it’s not as sweet as I would have expected - more cherry stones than cherry. Bitterness on the roof of the mouth in particular is quite lingering. This is a nice twist and is well executed. Finish is very dry, but that’s balanced by the nice sweet body. That makes it moreish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted this at the Royal Exchange, Stone on the 30th August 2014. Cask, handpump dispense. Mahogany brown in colour with a thin off white head. Cherry fruit evident in the short malty nose. Mixed malts deliver a moist maltloaf base with juicy cherry fruit that is subtle in the mouth, along with moist raisins. Earthy tones to the spicy hop resins give a light bitterness to the short aftertaste. Finish is malty with hints of oak cask and cherry peel in the palate. A good session Fruit Ale.
