Hazy, clear red pint. Slightly sour aroma. Flavour is toffee but with a too-tangy sweet edge for my taste. Itís nice enough but unfortunately has quite a watery finish.

Red hue with foamy head that dissipates but laces. Caramel and red fruit on nose,bit thin but to be expected at strength .very easily sunk and could easily session on it. Very like an English bitter for me . Enjoyed it.

gegwilson (3676) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle from Boothís in Ripon. A ruby ale with a cream head. Lots of toffee in the flavour. Itís quite sweet too and a little fruity. A reasonable amount of flavour going on. Itís a bit on the thin side and has a dry finish that Iím not keen on. Not bad overall.
