Bottle from Aeon Liquor! Aroma is biscuity malt, pink grapefruit, hint of booze. Taste is great, pink grapefruit is up front, maltiness is there too, bit of biscuit, caramel and light spiciness. Really easy to drink. No hint of the alcohol in the taste. Great stuff.

Irridescent copper. White head stays for the drink. Floral hoppy nose with a 60/40 split hop/malt distribution. Pure awesomeness to be enjoying this hoppy red craft ale at the Roundhouse in Hong Kong. A taste of Austin in the South Pacific.

Aroma is a bucket load of floral, citrusy hops. Taste is mild caramel malty sweetness, with a powerful punch of hop textures. Medium carbonation, mild alcohol warmth, medium bodied. Lots of cool dry hop flavour in this one, very tasty.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep amber from a 500 ml bottle. Mine had a gigantic foam head that left some lacing (unsure why as the other reviews indicated a minimal-no head). Aroma of sweet fruits and some malt tones. Taste is the same, citrus and fruit notes on the nose and malt tones as it goes down. Enjoying it but not as much as the hopwired due to the reduced hop and citrus notes in favor of the malt profile.
