[330ml bottle, Drinkmonger, Edinburgh] Slightly hazy raspberry red pour with a quickly-diminishing head. One of the first bottles to reach Scotland. Slightly tangy, spicy pine aroma. Leathery caramel on the flavour, with a slightly bitter yeasty far aftertaste. Decent enough though, like the piney woodyness  SilkTork (5728) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2012

Beer Festival 2012. Amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is fruity, wooden, caramelly, earthy and mildly yeasty and grassy. Flavour is leathery, fruity, wooden, herbal and also has some bitter grass and mild toasted notes. Long aftertaste.
Keg @ The Horseshoe, Hampstead. Deep hazy reddish orange with a frothy off-white head. The nose is light marshmallow, angel food cake, some cherries and bread. The taste is medium bitter floral hops, some light smoke. Delicate caramel malts, with notes of strawberry and burned brown sugar. Light tropical mango and hints of cocoa powder. This beer’s quite bitter on the finish. Medium body, but soft and silky, easy to drink. Pretty decent effort! imdownthepub (14469) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2012
