Cask at The Fountain Inn, Leek. A clear deep ruby, amber colour with a medium off white head. Aroma of fruit cake, caramel, slight nuts and subtle spicy hops.
Taste of dark fruits, red fruits, some caramel, cakey malts, slight nuts and subtle spicy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A sweetish, spicy, red fruit finish. A little thin and sweet for me, like juice at one point but it’s an easy drinking ruby bitter at the end of the day. jamesie1857 (1980) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2017
500ml bottle from Arrow Farm Shop near Worksop - Clear readdy amber body, no head. Rather flat body, didn’t help bring out the caramel and cake fruit notes. Sort of okay, but I’m sure in better nick it could notch a few more points. john44 (3402) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2017

Half pint, cask, served in a mug at Wm Hawkes. Yeah, it has got a dark ruby coloured body. Filmy layer, fair lacing. Brown malty smell, nutty. Brown malty flavours joined by moments of dried fruits. Malt bitterness to the ending. Satisfying (shared with Finn, Hull 26.11.2015).

Fra cask på WM Hawkes Hull 26 Nov 15. Delt med Rune. Dyp rubinrød. Lavt tett skum med litt farge. Tett lacing. God forsiktig karamellaroma med spor av fersken. Smaken karmellaktig med en undertone av syrlig frukt & rabarbra. BeerViking (5046) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2015
Cask at the Express, red-brown with a lasting fine head, earthy nose with a hint of cocoa, dry and lightly toasty with an underlying sweetness. Hints of baked bread and peppery hop. Clean and lightly earthy. Good.
