3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask handpull at CP&K, Pimlico. Strawberry fruity. Strawberry and a touch of diacetyl. Bit of biscuit. Maybe a bit rich on the mouth. No dryness, no big hop presence on the finish. Bit of tart strawberry on finish. Good and interesting and reminded me of the BrewDog Zephyr that tasted to me of strawberry shortcake. I expected more PNW hops on an American red ale interpretation.
Bottle. Copper with a cream head. Aroma of dried and some stewed fruit, orange and lemon peel, bread crusts, the meadow. Medium bodied, quite creamy texture. Dominated by herbal and citrus flavours with the malt and dried fruit taking too much of a back seat for me. But it is tasty. Quite bitter with some moderate roasted flavours à la old ales. Must have again - quite like it, may be a grower. Clearly very clever - its Englishness asserts itself to two different audiences at the same time. john44 (3111) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2017

Pint bottle. Clear red-orange body topped with a thin white head. Aroma is light but there’s some sweet malty caramel overlaid by flowers and lemon. Taste starts off with fresh pear before an earthy hop note emerges. Some lemon and pepper toward the end. Fairly clean finish leads into a slightly sweet aftertaste.

Nice hazy red orange colour, beige top. Superb pine aroma, orange peel. Sweet start, bitter finish, hoppy and spicy. Moderate to soft carbonation. Excellent beer. Would lile some mora alcohol, but anyway...
