3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask conditioned at The Whitefriars Ale House, Coventry. Copper to dark brown with cream head. Lovely condition, just pulled through, there is a rich, smooth chocolate note to this with a background caramel, toffee which gives depth rather than detracts in this case. Fruity, plummy, malty and rich. Mine was pretty decent.

2.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bought on cask. The beer does have a nice deep red colour to coincide with a half a finger white head. However i did struggel to get any aroma from the beer. Up on tasting the beer i did some caramel and biscuit notes but like i say only some. Nice and clear served from the cask.

Nice rounded medium bodied bitter with some fresh doughy hoppiness followed with a mellow light fruityness. Very easy session beer.
