Cask at Guildford Arms. It pours clear deep gold with minimal head. The nose is sweet, red berry, candy and grainy notes. The taste is sweet, syrupy, sweet tayberry/raspberry action, artificial notes and candy with a sweet, cloying finish. Medium body, low carbonation and viscous, sticky mouth-feel. Very sweet, a bit flat and cloying. Yup ...not great!

Cask, half at The Malt Shovel Inn. Slightly unclear, gold-amber coloured body. Tiny head, solid lacing. Tart and sweet aromas, malt and berries. Semi-tart berries to the taste character offset by the sweetness from pale malts. Dry, sweet and tart endnotes. Thin to medium bodied. Ok fruit beer (Edinburgh 09.08.2013).

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted this fruit beer at the Troon Beer Festival in October 2008. Cask, handpump dispense. Cloudy in appearance and not obvious pink but a lovely russet amber in colouration with very little head. Open and loose lacing. Very fruity in the aroma with overipe rasberry and bramble notes. Very refreshing mouthfeel. Initial sweet and soft summer fruit flavours in the mouth with little pale malt presence. Delicate floral hop resins slowly appear in the not too drying aftertaste, giving a very refreshing finish which would be ideal for a summer session. Never seen this ale on draught in my part of the world but I think it would be a very popular choice and we need more this type rather than the current plethora of golden ales being touted last summer. Highly recommended.
