Draught pint, served from a cask at The Sir Christopher Hatton, Chancery Lane on 26/02/15. Ruby reddish brown colour with a small off-white head which quickly disappears. Medium bodied with very little to no carbonation. Aroma of caramel, malt and fruit. Light bitter taste, but heavy in sweet fruit. Wouldn?t want to drink more t hand one.

After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting quantity wall adhesive light brown foam collar which was fine and even of structure. The beer also contained much carbonic acid in the glass. The beer has a clear brown color and a sweet taste. The after tast of the beer is hoppy bitter with a roasted malty touch . This beer smells malty.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ruby red with a thin off white head. Good retention and good lacing. Aroma is caramel, sweet malts, chocolate and hops and floral notes. Taste is slightly fruity, with caramel and chocolate. Medium bitterness at the end with some toastiness and grassy hops. Slightly sweet. No carb, medium body. I found the bottled somewhat watery but probably nicer.

This beer has a really interesting aroma. It smells much like an ale but there is something different which I can’t out my finger on. It had a malty flavor and finishes clean.
