Half pint, cask ale at The Hop in Leeds. Good looking with a body that is golden-brown,covered by a decent fawn-coloured head blanketing the top level of the glass. Smell of berries and bread-like malts. Jam-like flavour from a fine blend of dark fruits and dark malts. Dusty hoppy ending. Good (12.07.2012). dynamiteninja (1864) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2012
Cask. The Postern Gate (JDW), York. Thin white head. Copper-auburn reddish tinged body. Spice, nuts, fruit, chocolate. Sort of bittersweet to taste leaving a bitter finish. The sweetness is too sickly and artificial tasting. The bitterness is too harsh. Not a big fan of red beers. Miksu (5053) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - OCT 23, 2011
Cask at Ye Olde Mitre, London. Red amber color. Aromas and flavors of dark caramel, wine gums and nuts. Lots of dark caramel, which is not my cup of beer. worldbeertaste (1805) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2011
Light brown with thin white head. Toffee aroma. Light watery thin body. Toffee, coffee, and a sweet caramel ash finish. Blackberry. Light bitter start with a sweet end. Yummy sweet

Olde Mitre, London. Amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is wood, raisins, some wood, spruce and mild earthyness. Flavour is roasted malts, some grassy notes as well as mild caramel and some maltyness.
Cask (gravity) - The Murderers, Norwich. Fine & mostly disappearing off-white head leaving some lacing atop an unclear deep red body. An uneventful, muddled & fruit-forward bitter with a low bitterness. A hint of toasty dryness in there on the palate. A bit flabby all round. Stale fruit lingers in the aftertaste. ralphdot (1094) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2011
Wetherspoons, Water House, Durham, Dark red colour with a thin head, fruity aroma, bitter freuit taste. FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 6, 2011
Cask (Euston Tap, London)
6 Slightly cocoa aroma, masked by the sparkler.
4 Red, sparkler head.
6+ pleasant full malty taste.
4 Soft palate, carbonation low. Finish a little grainy, but quite brief.
12 Competent but not exciting. Better than I expected from a ’red’, as it wasn’t stupidly sticky sweet with caramel.
