Cask conditioned at Fleetwood Beer Festival '18. Amber with white head. There is a sweet fruitiness to this, similar to a strawberry type flavour along with some citrus juiciness. It's fine. daniele (10054) - ITALY - MAY 11, 2017

500mL bottle BBE: Dec 2015. Medium chill (approx. 10 degrees). A little gush when opened. Pours a lightly-hazy, copper body with pinkish hue and a medium, loose, patchy off-white head that hangs around. A low-medium intensity nose reveals sweet, malty, vanilla aromas that are nicely matched by grassy hop notes, with some perceptible oniony hop-staling in the background. To taste, a medium vanilla fudge sweetness is prevalent, with only a light bitterness not really able to compete. The fullish body has a chewy texture, whilst carbonation is medium-low and the finish has an almost bourbon-like vanilla sweetness to it. To my taste, the sweet, malty nature of this beer is more akin to a Scottish Ale. Quite pleasant as it is, it may have scored higher had it been classified as such.

11th Sep 2015: 500ml bottle poured into an ’Old Speckled Hen’ badged vase shaped pint glass at home in the ’Shires Virtual Bar’ day on the British Forum of RateBeer. Slight haze to the light amber bodied beer, the head soon fell away to a wispy covering from the true head it initially had. The aroma and taste were lending towards the malts more so than the mildly bittering hop content. Toasted semi-sweet maltiness is tempered nicely by the piny hops and the combination sits nicely. A decent thirst quenching blend that filled the lunchtime pint slot very well.
