    I get a light cherry-like note from this beer too. Interesting thing to note, if anyone’s every tried some British beers and let them warm up a bit, they all have this tart characteristic. I recently tried a Moorhouse Black Cat (Mild) and despite its malt-dominance, I tried it a little bit later and noticed some tartness which definitely is like cherry. Also, that same night I tried a Lion Stout (brewed in Sri Lanka, yet uses an English yeast strain). Lots of coffee and hints of chocolate and molasses, but again I perceived this tart cherry flavor. I could be wrong, but is this characteristic of English yeast strains?
