UPDATED: FEB 5, 2018 Cask at Draft House Charlotte, 16/01/18. Reddish amber with a well presented light beige head. Nose is caramel, biscuit, light candied fruits, perfume, airy malts. Taste comprises caramel, light floral rip, straw, toasted grains, brown sugar, candied orange peel, touch of grass. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, semi drying close with balanced hop bitterness. Decent cask offering for the style.

Turts (2) - Chafford Hundred, Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2017 Really well balanced malt and caramel red ale. The bitterness perfectly offsets the malt making this an easy drink on a cold night.

DruncanVeasey (8603) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2017
Spring SpoonsFest 2016. Eponymous and pale with a lacing beige skim. Fine contemporary juicy hop aroma with crystallised lemon peel and orange. Nicely balanced creamy hazelnut, gentle smoke and orange blended with blackcurrant hop. Flowery but solid. Best of the fest to date

downender (9054) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2016
Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms (JDW), Bristol March 2016. Copper in colour, with a slight, white, head. Aroma of citrus fruits, a hint of toffee and a touch of leafy hop. Flavour had sweetish, slightly bready, malts, more fruit and a moderately bitter finish. Good.

3.2
theprof (1460) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2016
Cask. Pours chestnut brown with white cream top. Solid lacing. Aroma Satsuma and mango. Flavours in the taste are soft fruits at the fore with a growing hoppy bitterness in the tail. The palate is medium bodied with some slight soapy residue in the aftertaste. Not bad overall and certainly captures some American red characteristics.

3.6

Cask at the Back of Beyond (JDW), Reading. Copper with a loose white head; tropical fruit aroma; pineapple and tropical fruit taste, but with an unusual sour twist, and a rye-like body. Rather good.
