Dark red beer with a slightly bubbly head and smells of a mix of fruit and malt. The flavour is of fruit (some sort of red berry, perhaps?) and strong, toasty malt which carries through with a touch of hop for a lasting finish.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2017 A pint of memories and pleasure in a glass. Rewards the curious drinker with a complex fruity and full bodied character. Enjoy at its best by visiting the White Bear, Masham. Smithld1 (355) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2017
Grand old drop when you’ve had a hard day pacing around the dales. Malty, sticky and a little punchy. thepatrickman (1503) - Lewes, East Sussex, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2017
Many, many pints in pubs over the years. This is an excellent pint of beer -- it’s got a lot of malt complexity, all of which comes out particularly well on cask, as well as some earthy and spicy hop flavor from the English fuggles. Definitely worth ordering if you see it on cask. Stuu666 (15301) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 20, 2017

Cask. Aroma fruit and caramel malt. Pours chestnut with thin lace top. Frankly in my youth this tasted completely differently. I would smile as soon as I saw it was on. Now it has dark fruit, liquorice and a slightly soapy finish whereas once it was Christmas pudding in a glass. Maybe I have aged better?
