500ml bottle into a UK pint sleeve at home on 1st Jan 2016. Deep ruby hue to the dark brown body, a full but thin head sat on top. Red berries and hedgerow fruits in the nose with a malt base. The taste follows along in the same way, malty, fruity and: a dry feel dominates the palate and a bitterness arrives mid-sip. Decent and flavoursome, enough going on to keep me interested for the whole bottle. Garrold (5186) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2014

Half pint, cask, shared with Finn at The National Winter Ales Festival. Close to clear mahogany coloured body. Headless. Aroma of half tart berries. Malt-fruity taste joined by berries. Late arriving bitterness. Quite ordinary (Manchester, 24.01.2013). dogbomb (1216) - ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2013
Cask at National Winter Ales Festival. Dark brown ale with a very lively light tan head. Nose lightly hopped. A little malt and light lemon. Easy drinking bitter with a little spice. Slightly astringent. Quite nice.
