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.

yngwie (13160) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 17, 2014
Bottle. A slightly hazy amber colored beer with a dense, light beige to off-white head leaving some lacings. The aroma is caramel-ish and lightly bready and nutty, with a nice piney and citrus peel-ish hoppyness. Itís full-bodied and lightly warming, with a nice carbonation level. The flavor is quite bitter, the hops overpowering the malty sweetness. Pine cones, hazelnut, some bread and caramel too. Lasting bitter finish with a lot of maltyness but itís far from cloying. Sure a solid one, tasteful too. 140617

Lawger (83) - SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2014
Pours amber red with three fingers of head. A little metallic, peachy aroma with scents of fresh hops, fall leafs (real or suggestive, I donít know), pine needles, resin and some fennel. Medium bodied, buttery on the palate with a medium bitterness which slowly builds up. Lightly roasted, slight butterscotch, medium finish.
