COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark ruby red, with an orangey fruity malt character. The spicy, resinous, lemony Goldings absolutely sing through the beer combining beautifully with the malt, and the bitterness is powerful and lasting, punching through the residual sweetness.

Cask Conditioned handpump Mr Foleys Leeds. A chestnut coloured bert with a big whtish head and lacing. Jammy fruit abounds. Very malty. Some hedgerow hoppiness. A big chewy, perhaps over chewy body. Good bitterness at the end. Its OK but nowt special.

Borefts Beer Festival 3. Clear brown beer, residual white head. Dry palate. A little caramel malt. Lots of bitter hops. Why there is some floralness there isnt to much hop fruit. Dry finish with a long bitter linger. Ok but its too skewed towards bitterness for me.
