$ 5.99/16.9 oz at Oppermann’s cork ‘N’ Ale
Bottle marked L13 21:39 at 50 degrees into imperial pint
Aroma of earth
Head average (4 cm), off white, creamy to fizzy, fairly rapidly diminishing to 2 mm partial layer
Lacing OK, scattered islands and partialring of small bubbles
Body chestnut, clear
Flavor begins with the earthy taste of the Maris Otter malts and the roastyness of burning witches, with a dry finish. No alcohol, no hops, no diacetyl.
Palate medium, watery, lively carbonation

An excellent ale, a good place to start if you’re new to Brit ales.

Pours a clear red with brown throughout. Small, short-lived head drops to a faint ring. No lace.
Smell is weakish with a weird vinegary note to accompany the witch-tempered malts, caramel, light smoke and molasses.
Taste is the same with much less of the vinegar note and more smoke, molasses and roasted-over-witches malts. Better balance for certain.
Not bitter but a tanginess is present. Medium bodied at best with a noticeable carbonation. Smoke lingers with the roast from the malt, fading gently. A decent brew but not worth a concerted effort to locate.
