A variation of our previous red/golden rye ales. Brewed in collaboration with Cervesa Marina, Catalonia (honorable mention to Gazza from Steel City). We used Pale, CaraRed, Munich, 30% rye malts, Carafa Special III and local rice that the brothers brought over in their hand luggage. Hopped in kettle with Herkules, Centennial, Kohatu and Galaxy, Centennial & Simcoe in fv.

Beese (2570) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2014
Draught at The White Horse, Parson’s Green on 24 Nov 2012. Poured a hazy, dark brown, with a halo of beige head. Weird aroma; very earthy, lots of rye and mixed with some odd cranberry and tart fruit notes. Initial flavours were oily, with some peal and toasted malt. Palate was really very nice; good residual roasty flavours, rich marmalade and peat.

angel77 (2498) - oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 10, 2014
Botella de 66 cl en el Lupulo. Septiembre de 213 color negro con espuma algo oscura y persistente. Cuerpo medio sabores a cereales notándose bastante el centeno, dándole a la cerveza un toque espeso y aspero. toques de maltas tostadas y final amargo contenido. Demasiado maltosa y cereales para mi gusto pero interesante para descubrir nuevos cereales en una cerveza.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2013
A Sim rate (cask at the Brew Wharf): Aroma is bitter chocolate & caramel. Flavour’s got a mad bitter hit with some real citric hoppiness that really follows through. Finish is a lovely bitterness that makes you keep puckering not to miss it. Nicely balanced and tasty treat.
