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.

Bottle from cellar served at 56F. Pours a rich copper-gold color with a thick off-white head. Head dissipates fairly quickly, but there’s very significant lacing. Aroma is full of hops on the initial smell, there’s caramel, bread, toffee underneath. Taking a drink initially puts a big burst of hop notes throughout your nose and mouth, resiny, piny and a bit of citrus (dried orange peel). There’s also a sweetness in the malt, caramel. I was expecting a bit more malt and I don’t really get any of the maple syrup that is supposed to be in there, but it’s a nice beer.

prawlie (1234) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2015
Bottle. Clear amber with a big foamy head. Lovely caramel and perfume aroma. Fruity, tropical juice and a touch syrupy. Hint of passion fruit. Pleasant, clean beer but a strong bitter finish. A nice drop.

beeebon (254) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2015
Pours a coppery amber colour with small but lasting tan head, looks good. Aroma is caramel malt, slightly earthy and some fruit like stewed apples. Taste is initially rather sweet but quickly balanced well with a dry bitterness. A little thin but not overly watery. Overall a nice beer which I would be happy to bring more of!

Tognetta (197) - Campinas, BRAZIL - APR 6, 2015
Ambar escura, espuma cremosa de média duração. Aroma intenso adocicado (caramelo), amadeirado. Paladar inicia doce mas logo migra para o amargor médio. Corpo médio, carbonação leve. Aftertaste bem amadeirado, mantendo o amargor. Bem gostosa e complexa.

Nice red ale with the normal malty aroma and taste. But this one also has a fresh fruity like hint to it what makes this one just a bit more refreshing. Really nice.
