Whitewater’s most popular brew this aromatic russet ale is brewed with the addition of Torrified wheat and roasted barley. Rich fruitiness is followed by a gentle hop flavour leading to its smooth succulent finish.

mcberko (8691) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 1, 2015
On tap at Bittles Bar, pours a clear copper with a medium white head. Nose brings out lots of English hops and some light biscuity malt to balance. Flavour is refreshing, with a good balance of floral English hops, light bready toffee and tropical fruitiness. Refreshing and well-balanced. Very solid.

McNeillR (1632) - SCOTLAND - APR 6, 2015
Coppery amber, neat sided white ringed head. Creamy, woody, dusty sweet nose. Bit of raisin, singed hay. Initial taste is straightforwardly toffee bitter, cooling sweetness and a little bit of drab spiciness. Carbonation is firm and stretches things a little, thin and cooling. Finishes neat enough, inoffensively caramel sweetness and a plain, digestivey vibe soaks up any unplesant bitter copperiness that tries to seep into the linger. Nothing amazing, however amiable it is now.

mR_fr0g (4971) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle at home from asda. Aroma is earthy twiggy, woodland berries and burnt sugar. Flavour is composed of twiggy nutty malts, little dried fruit. Palate is medium light with moderate carbonation. Pretty ordinary.

Patrickctenchi (4582) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle: Clear, brassy gold, creamy, off-white head. Light barley malt, fruit nose. Very soft, malt taste.....not a great deal of flavour, but nothing unpleasant either. Ok, but not much to it.
