Pint at Charlton Kings Club. Pours Red-Amber with a thick beige head. Malty, hoppy aroma, a little pine. Similar flavor, a little sweet up front, quite bitter, some fruity notes. jjsint (3492) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2016
Handpull cask at the Salutation, Doncaster. Dark brownish red, very clear with a white head. Lots of lacing. Not much scent. Some malt, berry, forest floor... noticeably metallic. Taste is an acrid bitter which later softens to a pleasant fruity sweetness. But it’s too late. A lingering acrid note at the end. A real let down.
