Cask at the High Cross Inn, Broughton-in-Furness. Copper with a tight white head. Aroma of fresh red cherries with a hint of metal. Sweet and fruity taste. Notes of raspberry, coffee and white chocolate. The sip ends with a nice bittersweet hit.

Dark brown non-carbonated special ale. Tasted from tap in a pub in Chester. Very hoppy for an ale, which gives it a surprising dry and refreshing bitter finish. Decent English beer. DougShoemaker (3146) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2010
