Massachusetts

4.55/5  rDev +29.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

This tan/oxblood Winter brew is topped by a fast fading beige head with sliding lace. The aroma is of caramel malt, fresh hops and pears. Sweet barley malt is almost oily slick. Full bitter tea-like and lightly citrus hops and berries. So creamy smooth rich and molasses-like sweet. Complex and pleasing from beginning to end.

3.23/5  rDev -8.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Served on cask at the Rose and Thistle, Frimley Green into a UK pint glass

For background purposes I'm not a fan of Young's (or Wells for that matter) and had not had this beer for some 8 or 9 years!

However, I went in with an open mind!

The colour was a dark rich, brown, darker than mid brown and a decent half finger of white head that remained pretty much throughout the first 2/3rds of the drinking experience

In terms of smell, fruits of the dark and dried variety stand out, along with spices and a little malt aroma

Tastewise, definately dominated by the fruits and malts, quite a complex taste of different malts going on, also caramel/toffee/sugars, and a toasted flavour blending in with the spices present (maybe a pinch of nutmeg/cinnamon?)

A fairly full bodied beer for 5% with a certain amount of chewiness, I took my time over this one! A Bitter/soured aftertaste.

Overall - I doubt I'll be re-visting this beer in the near future, but if it was the only cask ale present I wouldn't be too shy !
