3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’m becoming increasingly fond of Brewdog’s lower alcohol beers. This is another solid and flavoursome beer that packs more punch than it should.
Lovely aroma of sweet caramel, fruit and bitterness. The flavour is quite sweet and toasty, caramel, fruit, less bitter than the aroma, but still with a moderate resiny hop finish. FIrm body and mild to moderate carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Round, hoppy, almost earthy pines. I found this a tad watery. Lots of sappy tobacco, something slightly menthol and tongue numbing. Very easy but slightly lacking.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg, Cloisters. Chewy amber malt nose with lots of leafy dry hops. Sweet start but gets bitter. Not a refined lager but a big, leafy, slightly woody, well-integrated tasty one. One of the better BrewDogs.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, Morrisons, Carlisle. Good fresh pine aroma, some soapy lemon in there too. Initially I thought the body was a bit thin for 5% ABV, but, as a previous rating states, it comes into it’s own the further down the glass you go.
Very faintly woody, quite dry, nice smooth mouthfeel, good flavoursome finish that lingers well. For me, not the ’Holy Grail of red ales’ it claims to be, though.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
From bottle. Pours smoothly with an excellent head. Fruity aroma of hoss lemons and apples. Complex hoppy bitterness followed by spicy notes. Dark reddish bronze colour with good clarity, very tempting.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours brown/amber with good head. Nose is upfront, hoppy pine cones and a hint of nutty roasted goodness. It has a dried cookie note as well as a real fruity goodness. The palate is a bit light considering the aroma. A nice session brew with some good hops for body and a hint of nuttyness to it as well. easy drinking good brew!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle. Pours amber/brown with a bubbly tan head and leaves a solid coat of lacing. Spruce needles and fresh toffee on the nose with a roasted note and citrusy punch underneath. Leans way toward butterscotch on the palate with citrus and piney hops through a lengthy bitter finish.

3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Smooth compared to most British Ruby Ales with a more similar taste to North American ales. Not a particularly challenging ale but great tasting with a long finish

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle samples at Chancey Smith’s- Deep amber pour with some mahogany hues. Pours a tight eggshell cap. Citric nose has caramel, floral hops, a bit of toast, and banana. Semi sweet from caramel malts with a citric and floral hops bitterness that lingers. A medium bodied amber with assertive carbonation, and a lenghty bitter finish. Good!
