2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A darker amber colour that glow has a very thin head and a small berry aroma. It doesn’t have a huge amount of flavour but its medium body texture and light bitterness are equally as pleasant.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2012 Cask @ The Greyhound, Hartshill; ruby brown; smooth, solid mouthfeel; slightly sweet caramel taste with plenty of red berry fruit; lightly roasted malt; short, fruity slightly bitter finish; in a word: mellow. Probably best appreciated with a ploughmans in a hot sunny English country beer garden, instead of alongside an arterial road on a cold day in Stoke following an astingent pint of Titanic Steerage.

500 mL bottle from the Vale Brewery in Brill, poured into a pint glass at home. Dark copper colour with a good creamy head on it, a bit gassy. Fresh hoppy aroma, fruity. Bitter, smooth mild finish, a bit ’appley’. Pleasant enough, but could do with a bit more ’oomph’.

Very lively bottle. Pours ruby-red. Very earthy quality with hint of some herbs, a touch of wood and a dry finish. Some hint of mint as well. Interesting bitter, not bad.
