Pours an amber red with a crisp white head that fades quickly. Smells of roasted malts, and caramel. Nice hop presence up front balanced nicely by the rush of malts. Really nice balance with this brew. Overall really a solid brew and definitely worth a shot. I could keep a few of these on hand at all times.

Look: Nice clear amber with a white head. Nice lacing with minimal legs.

Smell: lots of floral cascade hops, sweet malt, bread crust, and a hint of bittersweet chocolate. Smells like a solid red.

Taste: Floral hops, citrus, gets balanced out by a really nice malt backbone. The finish is the best with hints of roasted malt and chocolate.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and smooth no hint of booze.

Overall: Fantastic. Easily one of my favorite reds. Love the bouquet of cascade hops and it is balanced perfectly with the sweet malt. While most reds would rely on that this one adds a beautiful touch of roasty chocolate malt on the finish that sets it's heads and shoulders above the rest

Cask version specially brewed at Wadworth for Wetherspoon (same abv).

Brick red colour with slight offwhite head. Apple and lemon nose. Fairly syrupy feel. Slightly earthy maltiness with toffee and apple flavours before some mintiness from the hops. Goes together better than I would imagine reading the previous sentence....
