COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A quaffable, well-balanced red ale with character. Its malty complexity and coppery color come from a combination of two caramel malts, pale malt, and a hint of maple syrup.

Scopey (8036) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle from Whole Foods, Piccadilly. It pours clear red-amber with a decent off-white head. The nose is smooth, sweet maple syrup, brown bread, caramel digestive biscuits, leaf and pine. The taste is bitter-sweet, woody, earth, leather, varnish, maple syrup, caramel, resin, light alcohol sting and light spice with a rather dry, earthy finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Good hit of bitterness. Decent stuff.

stevoj (2544) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 6, 2015
Hints of maple, but not enough to distract from a solid brown ale. Clear copper body with small skin of a tightly beaded head. Malt dominates, some mild hops in the background, a hint of maple sweetness.

Honey and flower aroma. Flavour is sweet nectar with some bitterness. A bit plain but nothing wrong with it really apart from a bit thin

Currently I am updating my ratebeer with al the beers I drank but was too lazy to rate at the time. I give the scores I gave back than. If I drink the beers again I might re-rate them.

Delicious red to fit the season. Very malty aroma with caramel and biscuit. Some bitterness from the hops but not that hoppy. Traditional red with a little spice from the maple.
