Dark Mahogany pour. No head, no lace. Strong aroma of hop, citrus and malt. Fresh and light on the palate. Hop, grapefruit, and malt taste. A great drink especially served cold. I am just surprised it didn’t the weight or boldness I was expected.

Bomber. Reddish caramel pour with tan head. Caramel and molasses in the aroma. Taste is sweet with hoppy after taste. Smooth creamy body. Nice red ale.

adster (395) - HUNGARY - SEP 14, 2014
Bronz színére vaskos, bézs hab telepszik, illata csak úgy árasztja magából a remekebbnél remekebb fenyőgyantás, ebből fakadóan némi karácsonyi hangulatot idéző aromákat, melyek között ugyancsak megjelenik az édes tejkaramella, valamint a dió és dohány fűszerezettsége is. A scotch ale-ekre általában jellemző barley wine-szerű illatok tehát ez esetben is erősen munkálkodnak, az imperial stoutokra jellemző szivárványszínű összetettség egy efféle darabnál is megfigyelhető kissé visszafogottabb és komlóközpontú formában. Bársonyos, apró, de simogató buborékokkal megélénkített kortyok során nyerhetünk bebocsátást a fajsúlyos előadásra, amelyben a kekszes, enyhén whisky-s malátás alapokból egy izgalmasan sokszínű, mégis magabiztosan összeszedett gyantás komlóépítmény emelkdeik ki. A konstrukciót kedvesen színezi ki a karamella és az aszalt gyümölcsök, kevés sárgabarack édessége, hogy aztán végleg átadják a helyüket a hosszan elnyúló komlós utómunkának.

Scottish red ale? It’s a new one on me, but my first impression is that it may carry a wee bit of the famous Islay phenolics without it actually being a fault. I move on: looks to be red amber in colour with a good carpet of marshmallowy cream coloured head. Heady aromas of orchard fruit, hoppy redwood and spruce resin make this an enticing ale. The flavours are reflected thusly and have a spiciness and piquancy arising from the bitterness that is extremely enjoyable. In fact, I haven’t had many belches as pleasing recently. Yum.

Bottle in Florida. Called an amber due to color maybe? Tastes much thicker and hoppier. Read label afterwards. Scotch ale wannabe is right

Travlr (11976) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Dark amber, a lightly spiced sweetish aroma. Big, big malt taste with very light smoke. Thick and chewy, like an ice cream soda.

hotstuff (4096) - Indiana, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Rated on 7-04-2012 (Bottle-Siciliano’s Market-Grand Rapids, MI) The appearance is a medium sized semi-fizzy beige head with a long retention, amber transparent body, very fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, pine hops, and spice. The flavor is sweet, spice, caramel malt, pine and some citrus hops. The mouthfeel is mild carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This beer has a lingering hoppy aftertaste, worth trying and a beer I would drink again.

Vaiz (3372) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle in a hotel room in Las Vegas. Hazy brown to amber pour, creamy off-white head. Aroma of caramel, licorice, citrus, floral hops, resin and some biscuits. Flavor is very nicely balanced, bitter floral hops, sweet caramel malts and smooth with a huge body and lively carbonation. Great brew.

A decent enough red/amber ale, but like most of their stuff it was top hoppy for my tastes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy deep brown with red hues. Dank nose of meaty citrus and pine with toasted malt and light raisin. Flavor is a mix of citrus and grapefruit with toasted malt and caramel. Faint notes of dark fruit. Lingering burnt toast and citrus.
