3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned at Moreton in Marsh Beer Fest ’12. Tawny red with white head. Something a little different here, certainly pretty sweet and fruity, plummy, damsons followed by a sharpish twang, like a slightly corked red wine, this adds to the beer rather than detracts. Decent.

Almost clear deep amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and fairly minerally crisp. Unsweet caramel malts, slightly nutty too. Bitterish dried fruits. There is a slight aged taste to this beer yet the palate is fresh and crisp. Light dry finish, modest bitter linger. Slightly left field.
