ManVsBeer (11724) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2018
Pendle Beer Festival 2018. Dark clear golden in colour. It has a gentle sweet berry taste, with its sweetness evident in its aroma too.

Bottle at home. Pours clear amber with a thin off-white head. Aromas of caramel, nuts, light herbal hops. Taste is light sweet, demerara sugar, earthy hops. Clean finish. It's not bad.

AshtonMcCobb (7133) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 5, 2018
On cask at High House Farm. Appearance - amber brown. Nice lacy head. Nose - brown bread. Caramel. Some red fruits if you go looking for it. Taste - caramel and biscuit. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy yet crunchy texture and a long dry crunchy finish. Overall - good example of the style.

Bottle from Corbridge Wines. A red-brown beer with a thin white head. It has a nutty, malty and red fruity flavour with a gentle roasted bitter-sweet finish. Not bad.
