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.
