I have missed this lightness but flavour. It is a good daytime ale. It is a shame that I canít find it in bottles at the moment.

Great traditional red ale. Not too much from the hops. But a balanced sweetness from the malt with caramel, biscuit and raisin. A little spice in there. Not at all stale tasting as some Irish/reds can be.

Clear red beer, off-white head. Tangy fruit aroma. Sugary apple taste, some caramel, a light maltiness. Other than a little at the front and back thereís not much bitterness. A touch watery in mouthfeel and aftertaste.

Cask at the Tap on the Line Kew. Aroma moderately malty, fruity and spicy notes. Pours chestnut brown with thin top diminishing. Tastes berry fruits and caramel malts. Overall pleasant enough once a Northerner gets over the shock of London prices.

Cask @ The Boat, Berkhamsted. Very rich and malty, refreshing with hints of plums, red berries and ripe sour cherries. Not much bitterness, round and fruity, smooth. Nice autumn ale. Tastes like a nice sunny autumn day with wet red leaves on the ground.
