COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tall Poppy - India Red Ale This is an ale that is not afraid of standing tall among other great beers. The intense, sharp and fruity hoppiness is backed by its complex, caramel-like malty structure. Big, yet refreshing. Bold but balanced. This beer has been designed to have it all, to be the greatest common denominator.

Ruby-brown cream with fairly high carbonation. redcurrant and pines on nose. Very astringent caramalt and resinous hops quite fizzy and not my thing.

18-JAN-2012, bottle @ulklřbben meeting, @Henrik. Amber (!) with huge, creamy, lasting, lacing, tan head. Hoppy malty aroma. Bitter, grape fruit and pine. Taste the same with some dried and exotic fruits. Very creamy, short aftertaste. Overcarbonated. Fine brew.

Hazy dark amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Softish palate, fine carbonation. Slightly dry. Nice creamy malt base, smooth. Great piney hops with lesser orange and grapefruit. Trace of mango. Finishes creamy and semi dry. Well joined up. Sweet peach in the finish as well!

Bov (9799) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 13, 2013
from Erzbierschof - clear reddish beer with a little but persistent foam; hoppy aroma of red fruits marmalade; notes of raisins and cream; a good malt backbone and a subtle but fair carbonation; a decent bitterness, quite dry with long notes of caramel and more red fruits hoppiness - very drinkable and charming

HeistAlmighty (1155) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - JAN 12, 2013
500ml bottle. Red brown colour, hazy, moderate off-white. Aroma is piney and grapefruit hops with some candy malt. Taste is much the same. Medium body. Overall, it is what it says it is, a red ale hopped like an IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gedronken bij dutchdrebus, bij het inschenken valt de grote vaste schuimkraag meteen op. Bruine kleur. Ruikt fris, hoppig en zoet. Smaakt vol, hoppig, zoet.

Bottle @ home, shared with the gf. No matter how slow you pour it, a huge, dense, lasting white head will form. The head doesn’t shrink.. Im getting thirsty. The beer itself is hazy amber coloured. Smells some orange peel, hops, slightly sweet, slightly grapefruit, malts. Tastes mandarin, slightly chocolate, some hops, malts and even a bit roasty. Quite a special combination of flavours. Thin to medium body, soft carbo.

Pyobon (975) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 9, 2013
(Bottle) Lovely looking beer: clear ruby tinted brown with big beige head. Subtle but very nice aroma of fruit (stone fruit). Medium bodied and quite well carbonated giving very good mouthfeel. Well balanced flavour starting with nice combination of rich toffee caramel maltiness and fruity tang transitions to an assertive but very nice hoppy bitterness which persists for a long finish. An impressive beer.

RichTheVillan (3517) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; clear light brown with a red tinge, pine hop aroma, toffee taste with a small amount of hop reminds me of a poor version of Hop Rod.
