An old favourite of mine, which I prefer from the bottle than from the cask. Clear brown with an almost purple hue, medium body and moderate carbonation. Great English hop tastes come through alongside the malt - plums, herbs, mulled wine, and there is a sugary sweetness present before a slight bitter edge to the finish. Good beer.

It’s not bad, but it’s not great either - lacks some stronger defining qualities. Hoppier than your average bitter, but the malt profile is lackluster.

A truly incredible beer in my opinion, one of my personal favorites that I have discovered. The bottle design is great, I love the art style they have chosen and works well in the beers favour. The beer has a complex taste which I am sure many will appreciate as I did. Good citrus notes complemented by a strong yet not overpowering hop flavour. The spice that comes through at the end is what stands out to me. Highly recommend this one!
