On cask at the Belfast Beer Festival, 2012
Bright amber with loose white froth.
Gloopy malt syrup nose with cinnamon and red grape.
Rusk, tinny autumn leaf, butterscotch and maybe some red pear, then drying leafy hops.
Lt-medium, clean, some cling.

A very English bitter with no real aroma hops but at the same time certainly doesn’t cloy and, with a crisp bitterness apart from any IBUs and a mineral feel, ends up dry and refreshing.

Cask conditioned pint poured into a straight glass via handpump at the Turin Tap on Oxford Road
Pours a lovely rust red body with perfect white tight head
Not a big aroma but between red laces there's boiling potatoes
Nice malty flavour balanced out against strawberry liquorice finish
