COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Occasional. Also available bottle conditioned.
Ruby is a premium red bitter with rich malt depth. The smooth palate is pronounced by English hops giving the trademark Yeovil Ales aromatic signature

Cask at The Antelope in Surbiton. Not ruby at all, it was a pretty dark brown, but keeping its head nicely. Rich malt, caramel, some ash, a smooth palate. Good bitter.

DanielBrown (3748) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2013
Cask at Briar Rose, Birmingham. Ruddy colour, rich malty taste. Sweetly bready, like, perhaps German rye bread. Good malt blend, some course bitterness. Fine.

BlackHaddock (3514) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2013
Nearly didn’t review this as it wasn’t right: hand-pulled half-pint in the town centre (Telford) Wetherspoons on 16th Oct 2013. Poured a dull almost murky brown colour with a good solid head of off-white bubbles, certainly not ruby red or clear: the alarm bells began to ring. Anyway back at my table it sat and stared back at me while I decided what to do. The aroma made me try it: I like malts, so the semi-rich smell of malty molasses ensured I had a sip. It was on the turn, but I couldn’t be arsed to take it back. I’m sure it’s a lovely malty, tasty brew normally and have scored it accordingly, not on my little experience. If I ever come across it again, I’ll re-write this piece.
