On tap somewhere! Clear dark brown beer. Dry and semi soft palate. Fruity and rich. Plummy fruit with hints of other dark red fruits, even a trace of blackcurrant. Finishes dry with repressed spice.

tombyars (1486) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2012
Tasted this in cracking condition in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in February 2010. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear ruby red in colour with a thick buff head. Smokey roast malt in the long aroma and creamy mouthfeel. Good lacing throughout. Dark malts give a maltloaf base with a slight toffee edge in the mouth. Dry hop note in the aftertaste along with oak wood tannins. Robust malt returns in the sweet smokey finish. An excellent session ale and my favourite so far from the Wolf portfolio.

sm89walt (1816) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 8, 2010
Cask - The Glasshouse (JDW), Norwich. Poured ruby in colour with a fine, frothy and loose off-white head. Mid fruits and dry hop tones on the nose, some toffee too. Nice balance of flavours - sweet, lightly toasted malt notes up front moving to a dry, subtle hop bitterness with a roasty edge in the finish. Medium in body, quite a soft palate texture with low carbonation.

berkshirejohn (5163) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2010
Cask at the Hope Tap (JDW), Reading. Copper coloured with a dense cream head; fruity aroma; rather thinly bodied with purple fruit and toffee flavours; the finish starts with a short dry bitterness, but then develops a sweeter butterscotch flavour.

kwik-lime (1501) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2010
Cask at JDWs on Whitehall. Far milder than the commercial description would have you believe, I found the palate to be slightly watery and unimpressive. Overall this was a decent session beer though with a pleasant fruitiness coming through and going down nicely.
