This has surpassed all other Amber/Red beers in terms of smoothness and maltyness for me. The description on the label is 100% accurate. With a solid 6 ABV you wouldn’t even realize, I would share this beer on cold fall or winter nights with someone who may not have yet discovered an appreciation for malty goodness.
12oz bottle on 30th June 2017 at The Crown Inn, Oakengates. Red hue to the amber body, white topping. Malty nose with hedgerow fruits/berries hanging around. Taste is similar to the aroma, semi-sweet maltiness with red berries in the flavour. Decent. jackl (8214) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 28, 2017

Bottle at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) Pours a hazy deep amber colour with a thin off white head. Aroma of red berries, some dark berries, slight caramel, a little toasted malts and subtle grass. Taste of red berries, raspberry, some strawberry, slight caramel, a little roasted malts and subtle grass. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A short, roasted, berry finish. I found this smells and tastes like raspberry ripple or strawberry laces, weird but works. However the finish is short and lacks a big flavour. bubblehouse (1542) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 26, 2016
Weak aroma. Tastes pretty plain without any distinctive flavors what so ever.

330ml bottle @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours a deep amber, large white head. Aroma is soft malt and berry fruit. Taste is light, smooth caramel, vanilla and berries. A little sweeter than anticipated, but still an enjoyable amber. SamVimes21 (488) - - JUL 6, 2016
Bottle from Cornwall Specialist Beer Shop, brown beer with white head with malt and biscuit taste, and a malty aftertaste, nice beer. ianwelby (1432) - SCOTLAND - MAR 27, 2016
Clear red beer with a thin filmy head. A bit of fruit and some caramel in the smell. A touch drier than I expected in the taste. Same qualities as the aroma but there’s a touch of bitter hop in there too and a sharp feeling on the tongue. niquillis (2752) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2015
Bottle from Ye Olde Bull & Bush, Stoke. Pours amber. Nice light spice, malty finish. Well balanced and easy drinking. A little pricey at £4.40.... mrhowes (22) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - AUG 19, 2015
A simple red ale. Not bad, but nothing that stands out from the rest of the red ales in the world.
