Clear cherry red color with a respectable creamy pink head and some nice lacing.
The aroma is very Cherry, ripe tart cherries.
The taste is ripe tart cherries mellowed by some sweet light malt, very tasty and nicely refreshing.
The body is light/medium, mild carbonation, very smooth and very drinkable.
Altogether, this is another excellent contribution by Samuel Smith, very tasty and very enjoyable, excellent.

Cherries seem artificial, but I know they are not. Not luscious, that's for sure.

Look: Poured from a pint bottle - Very dark red pour almost like a medium light brown color. About a finger length of foam rose to the surface.
Smell: Getting fruity aromas, definitely getting cherry, strawberry, even apricot.
Taste: Wow!!! HUGE sweet taste of cherries. Definitely tastes like a better version of Hawaiian punch.
Feel: light bodied beer, almost no carbonation on the tongue.
Overall: This beer was actually 9.5/10 for me. It surprised me on how good it was. Definitely should buy it!

330 ml bottle, at The Chandos (a Samuel Smith’s pub), London. ABV is 5.1%. Red colour, moderate pale pink head. Strong aroma of preserved cherries / cherry liqueur / cherry chocolates with marzipan. Medium sweet flavour of cherries and almond essence / marzipan. A nice change-of-pace beer, when you are tired of the usual English bitters.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: Red, almost pink glass, holds a solid halo of pink foam that laces the glass. Murky, with a soft glow.

Aroma: Cherries, lots of them. Floral, sweet, Hawaiian Punch, cherry juice.

Taste: Sweet, fruity, not all cherry, some apple, grape, and a generic "fruit juice" taste. Slight bitter sour grape skin note at the finish, but finishes lighter than expected.

Mouthfeel: Juicy, low carbonation, medium body, slight pucker.

Overall: Fruit bomb, and a well done one. Super sweet, a dessert beer for sure, best shared. I can see getting more.

My go to for a nice treat. I love cherries and this ale is not far from straight cherry juice. I've shared with others who'd never try it otherwise and they loved it.

Wow, that is a lot of cherry! There is matured malt character behind an almost syrupy sweet cherry. I am a huge fan of cherries so I like this, but if I want hops and malt body, I'll stick to the nice English bitter.

Pours a ruddy amber color,with a massive creamy, foamy head which has a red tinge. All I am picking up on is cherry.Feel is creamy cherry,some hops,full bodied, creamy. Overall this takes like I burped after eating a cherry Rolaid. The cherry taste is nasty, A very artificial cherry flavor like in medicine eg; Cherry Pepto Bismol. I love cherries of all varieties and somehow they made this taste like cherry medicine. C'mon, how many hundreds of years do you need to make a palatable brew?
