500ml Bottle. The aroma from this beer is (to me) surprisingly given the description on the bottle, of dark sweet fruits. However when its poured the dark reddish body confirms this is definitely at the darker end of the bitter spectrum. It pours with a thick ice cream cone type head that is medium in duration and moderately laced. It tastes of dark fruits, hops, and then a bitterness which passes to a dry malty finish, There is also hints of burnt caramel and nuts along the way too. Overall this beer is a lot darker than i was expecting or enjoy but its certainly has character.

On tap @Beerland Trilussa (Rome). Pours a cloudy reddish color with a medium white head. Aroma is malty, biscuit, caramel, earthy notes, grass, fruits. Flavour is quite balanced, medium malt profile with a decent bitter end. Medium body, light carbonation. Nothing special. Mr_Pink_152 (5110) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2015

(Bottle) Clear copper with reasonable but short lived head. Subtle, lightly malty aroma with some nice hop notes. Medium body with mouth-filling carbonation. Very nice rich taste - toffee malts with spicy and bitter notes. Excellent.

Reasonable aroma - thin looking clear browny red with little head. Medium carbonation giving initial fizz in mouth and zing aftertaste. Bitter sweet with dry finish - drink ability improved with standing. snowdog140 (58) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2015
A deep red colour with small head works with a sweet and slightly bitter aroma, hints of banana as well. Taste is earthy and roasted with fruity hints as well, a really nice mix of the two which makes it very drinkable. Fin (10621) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2014
Bottle courtesy of Barry at Lynn and Barry’s, Merton (cheers you two) Saturday 13th December 2014. Rich toffee dominates, colour in (note it is in subdued light) appears tawny. Fairly traditional, malty with English hops (probably). Par for the course for Elgoods. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov12 3.1
