Idiosynkrasie (5026) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 18, 2015
500ml bottle. Clear, copper-ish, dark amber colour with average, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Nuttily, malty aroma, a touch of caramel and shortbread. Taste is dry, nuttily malty, some caramel, a touch of toffee, slightly citrusy hoppy overtones with hints of orange and orange zest; bitter hoppy finish. Nice.

Cask at Bursley Ale House, Burslem. A clear amber colour with a fluffy white head. Aroma of caramel, burnt sugar, herbal, grapefruit and apple hops. Taste of caramel, fruitcake, wood, spicy, herbal fruits like apple and grapefruit plus a hint of resin. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and an oily texture. A long fruity bitterness in the finish. A nice, flavourful red IPA/bitter.
